I can't believe it's already time to start my kidding thread. Time has flown! 😄

This will be my second kidding season as well as both of my does' second freshening. First up is Bella, she's all dried up now and her due date is January 18th. Only two months to go! 😲😁

I feel like she is bigger this year than she was last year. I'm betting three for her this time instead of two.

Here's Prim. Here due date is February 4th. She'll be dried up next week.

I'm waiting until she is also three months to go to give my guess for her, but so far I'm thinking only two. Same as last year.

And here is Cullen. He is the buck they are both bred to. These will be his first offspring.

They all look extremely healthy and happy!! 😍

Bella does look big for three months preggo, Prim looks pretty big too. Looks like they'll both have at least twins, but I won't be surprised if they both had triplets! It will be very exciting to see how Cullen's kids compare to Phantom's.😁

Do you have any plans for retaining kids?

Hope both does have a smooth pregnancy and delivery to healthy kids!😊

Oh yay! Was looking forward to your thread! Prim looks like a totally different goat! Is Bella a Nigerian? She doesn’t really look like a Kinder compared to your others. She’s pretty though!

Thanks, Dandy! Healthy and happy is what I aim for! I do not plan on retaining any kids this year. I firmly warned my family not to get attatched to anything. I don't have that problem, but my the rest of my family does! 😏

Bella is a full blooded kinder too. She is just a bit lighter boned than the others. 🙂

You're welcome! What!? How can you resist all the cute little kids you'll be having?!? Just wait until your does kid, I'm sure you'll change your mind then....that or your family will talk you into keeping one or two. Haha! 😅 I totally get it. You just can't keep 'em all. I also remember you mentioning that you found an awesome breeder, so you have to save some space for those babies.😃

My plans for the future is to add a buck, keep a buckling out of Murphy and Cullen, and then keep a doeling out of Prim and the buckling I purchase. So there will be babies kept in the future, but not this year. I'm sure of it. 😁 I think four does would probably serve all our milk, butter, and cheese needs. That's the goal, complete dairy independence! 😙

Well... I was going to get you some new ones, but today I was busy running errands and tomorrow I have to cook Thanksgiving all day, so I probably won't have time, and then the day after that is Thanksgiving, so here are some pictures that I took for the first post that didn't make the cut. 🙂
