    YAY! All three of our March doelings are big enough to breed! Flicka and Gem weighed 78lbs. when we taped them the other day and Jade was 85lbs!! Gem and Jade are sisters. Jade is gaining approx. 0.41lbs. a day. In 19 days Jade had gained 10lbs! :shock: :D We are going to have a very spread out kidding season! Kiko/Boer and Nubian/Kiko cross kids in Jan(2 kidding), Nubian kids mid/end of Feb(1 kidding), Nubian kids in mid march(1 kidding), and Nubian and Nubian/Kiko cross kids in April/May(3-4 kidding). Babies......Babies......BABIES!!! :leap: :clap:

    I am sure we will probably be doing this :hair: by the time all of the kids are here! :ROFL:

    Flicka should be coming in heat next week. I can hardly wait, because this is going to be funny! She already has a disgusted look on her face when she walks by his pen and he flaps his lips at her! I am going to get a real dirty look when I stick her in there and then shut the door in her face!!! :shock: :lol: Gem should be coming in heat in about two weeks....and I am not sure about Jade.

    Oh, I know! Don't you just love that look they give you! Like "I don't wanna be with him, he's and icky boy" :lol:
    I had to rebreed Gertie yesterday(Feb kid) she's so funny when I put her in there. Her tail is going at a hundred miles an hour but all she wants to do is head butt with the buck. She also does the buck thing to him :roll: The funniest part is that he'll pee on her face and she'll pee on his, then they just stand there looking at each other with their lips up :lol:
    Goats are funny :D

    I'll have a dry yearling next year! I don't plan on breeding Georgia.

    But our breedings are spread out to. I have two that would be due between dec-feb. another due in march. and then my two nubians who aren't bred yet...I dont think. Unless Storm was able to get the job done. Lol

    The looks we get are very funny!! I put Flicka in with Cass yesterday, because I thought she looked like she was starting to come into heat....she was freaking out, so I let them both out that way she get away from him a bit. She ran off and he joyfully bounced after her like Peppy LaPue(SP?)!!!! :ROFL:

    Today after we cleaned the barn we put Jade, Gem, and Flicka in with Cass. Jade is in heat now and I just seen him breed her! :D

    Amy, I hope Storm will be able to get the job done soon if he already hasn't. :)
