My daughter's Alpine, Nadine, has spent three separate times at the breeder's. She spent nearly 3 weeks during the last weeks of Nov. and early Dec. She has such subtle heat symptoms, we did a lot of guessing. We're hoping this last visit was successful. No heat symptoms since that time, so maybe babies. :question:
Anyway, here's her beau, "Nix".



Cha-cha pic. Not too clear, though.

Face time with our girl:


Hay belly or baby fat?


We do hope for kids in the spring, but I don't know if that's happening for Nadine. We'll have a new Oberhasli doe soon and she's ginormous, so Ober babies soon. Maybe Alpines in late April. :baby:

Stacey, Nadine stayed with Nix from the first part of Thanksgiving week until Dec. 3, IIRC. She does like to eat, and is on the roundish side, but she's looking thicker than usual.

It's exciting. She'll be a first freshener and will be 3 years old in March.

Yep, we'll be cuckoo bananas together! :slapfloor:

We'll have the Ober babies to keep us busy here. How many does are pregnant at your place?

How fun. I love babies! We can't wait for the new Ober. She's due soon and will be with us today if all goes well.

All my daughter's goats live at the school farm, even though I'd bring them home in a heartbeat. No land for us yet, so this is the next best thing.

The new doe is a beautiful black Ober with good genetics. She's a second freshener and is very sweet. She'll be a fine addition to the school dairy herd.

There are also lambs due next month and the ewes are my daughter's responsibility as well.

Babies, babies, babies. Gotta love 'em. :stars: Best of all good luck for your girls and their kids.
