I've had horses and cattle all my life and I'm an Equine Vet Tech. Basically, a Mid-Wife for horses, so the whole birthing process is not a new thing for me, EXCEPT this time it will be for goats! :leap: Who knew I would be so enamored by this creatures? :lovey: I love them. One of my equine clients told me it was because it was the first time I ever had farm animals as PETS and not COMMODITY. That made all the sense in the world! My 1st doe is due the 28th of this month. My family and I are beside ourselves with excitement. My son’s 5 & 6 have been watching YouTube videos of births so they can assist. I love that they are so into the goats. The 2nd doe isn’t due until Feb 19th. This is a registered LaMancha bred to a registered LaMancha buck. We are hoping for a nice buckling to become our herd sire for a few years. We get a break in March then the other Sannen, LaMancha and Alpine does are due in April. My husband wanted “Man Goats”, so we acquired 2 registered Boer does and they are currently turned out a Boer buck. The thought of all of these kids has made us giddy! :stars: I just pray that everything goes well and everyone stays healthy and happy.
