    I figured since we are only 5 weeks out from kidding that I should start a waiting thread!

    Our first doe due is Hanna. She looked to have triplets or quads on her ultrasound at 45 days. Hoping it's twins or triplets lol. She had some lameness issues last year with only twins and I had to induce her. One was born dead. I'm hoping things will go smoother this year for her. I will most likely induce so she kids when I'm home in case of any issues. She is due September 13th. She is bred to Wild and these will be his first kids on the ground. She started developing an udder about 4 weeks ago.

    And Wild the buck she is bred to

    Coyote should also be due around the same time but not sure if she took or got bred later. Hasn't had any udder development yet but looks bred. She is also bred to Wild.

    The rest of my does are bred to Electro and their due dates range from October-January.
    Lucy, Magic, and Freesia would be due end of October. All look to have twins.

    Justice would be due in November and has at least twins on ultrasound. She is actually bred to Wild not Electro.

    And then Flame who was supposed to be bred to an outside buck but aborted at 60 days. She has been bred back last week to Electro.

    I'm also going to breed my younger girls for a batch of Spring kids. Haven't decided who will be bred to who though yet. Though I am leaning towards Electro for these girls.

    Everyone gets a shot of selenium, vaccinated, and dewormed 30 days before breeding. All does
    get a booster 30 days out from kidding.

    Thank you everyone! We are so excited about this kidding season. I feel that we have greatly improved our herd over the past year!
    Magic is alreasy miserable but still has 2.5 months left. Hard to believe she's been in the diet/pasture only pen for the past two months. Don't think she dropped weight at all lol. She only had a single last year but looked to have at least twins or possibly triplets on ultrasound this year

    Hanna is 4 weeks out now! She got her pre-kidding pampering today. And an ultrasound just because. If you look at the bottom right corner you can see a strong heartbeat on one of the kids. So far she has not had lameness issues so keeping my fingers crossed she won't this time.
    Here's the video:
