    Lots of does bred here for 2018, starting in January and going through the end of May! If all have settled, we’ll have 22 does freshening. First up are two Nigerians- Rebekah and Loretta. Loretta is due a week from today- January 11. She will be 3 in March, but this is her first freshening. Rebekah is due the next day, she will be 8 this year, this will be her 5th kidding with us. Both are starting to fill their udders nicely. Looking forward to kids again soon! Not the best pictures but I grabbed a couple today. They're both getting big, I wouldn't be surprised if both had triplets!
