    It is confirmed - I am going to have babies in late January!

    We had the vet out last weekend, and one doe is confirmed pregnant! We believe that there are 2 maybe 3 bakin' in the even! It was so neat to see them in the womb!

    Mom is a pure nigerian (unregistered) white with black (looks like a cow :wink: ) Dad is Registered Nigerian pure white.

    Count down begins! :D

    that is awesome. I won't be breeding until December. So when you all are having kids I will still be wondering if mine are bred *sigh*

    That's great!!! I just bred my last doe yesterday morning so I will have kids in March. Stacey, you can always enjoy our kids until you get yours. You actuall choose a great time to breed because of your weather.

    oh yes I chose no earlier then April because the weather here is to unpredictable and I can't chance kids getting frozen because I work 5-6 days a week.

    I didn't expect Daisy to go into heat 2 weeks after getting her...LOL! I was a bit ignorant a month ago -LOL!

    I am so excited though. We are building her a birthing area inside the garage that has a fireplace in it and that way I can just hose out the area, and never have to worry about them getting cold :)

    Hubby is not happy that he has to share the garage in winter with goats, but as much as he denies it - he loves the little boogers!

    It cost me $25.00 for the one that we did find babies, and 0 for the one that we did not find babies.

    My vet had never ultrasounded goats before, so it was a learning experience for both of us! She is actually a llama and alpaca specialist, but i used to work in the clinics with her. She helped me to rescue a dog a couple years ago and has done surgery on the same dog. Are you here in Idaho??

    Congrats everyone.
    Yep, I'm counting down now too. June was in heat yesterday and wouldn't let Hank near her, put them in a pen all night together, didn't hear anything going on. And today she won't leave him alone, she has been all over him and him her. YEAH, HAPPY DANCE. She had a single last year that is beautiful, sannen/boer. Can't wait to turn the barn cam on.

    Great site, Stacey.

    Another one bred!

    Well, to much of my surprise, one of my new goats came into heat 6 days after getting her, and we are not done with the males pen - so guess what - Yep, should be expecting another kidding on March 3rd! I am excited, but did not want her bred for another 2 months, to give me time to get her hooves back into shape, and some weight off of her.

    I went out to feed last night, and Gabriel was all happy over her, and she showed wet in the back with white "goo" leaking out. So........ I believe she has been bred!

    She is a pygmy - just gorgeous - and Gabriel is my registered Nigerian.

    What happened to pygmy being seasonal breeders....LOL! Thank goodness she is alreay 3 1/2 and this is her first pregnancy!

    That was what I was told in regards to Pygmy's in this area. That because of being cold, they typically do not have estrus around this time of year.

    I wouldn't believe that.

    Pygmies can cycle all year.

    Now that it has become cooler all mine are going into heat. The cool weather seem to have "set them off" I have had at least one goat in heat for a month now (I have 6 does).

    Are you breeding everyone for spring babies?

    I have one other that I really want bred, but she is 1 1/2 always has been with a male, and has never become prego - I am starting to wonder if she even can! LOL!

    My other pygmy that is having her horns banded at my friends house, I am really hoping gets bred before she comes home. I would be so happy.

    My Gabriel also has his "old flame" here and we are waiting for her to go into heat so I can breed her again and send her home. She has had 2 kiddings from Gabriel that we know of before. Both of them sets of twins.

    Will keep you informed!

    Allison, she might get bred now that it's the fall - you never know.

    My goats haven't come in season yet :evil: I have been letting them out with Samuel (my buckling) these last 2 days (under supervision) to see if any of them are interested - but nope. I only want Whissy bred, but she has shown no internet.

    I was clapping her on actually because Sammy was being a pain going for her udder and she got REALLY mad and started beating him up :twisted:

    I am hoping that my pygmy takes, as she is just a beutiful caramel, with black socks, black stripe down her back, and the traditioanl mask. She is just beautiful!
