    So its coming up to breeding season here. I put the boer does out for a green pick yesterday.

    And I looked at Linus.

    And she has an UDDER.

    Big deal you might think, all does have udders. BUT - she has an udder that looks like she will kid in 6 to 8 weeks time.

    AND - the biggest part of the problem is ...

    I HAVENT HAD A BOER BUCK ON THE PROPERTY FOR THE LAST 8 MONTHS

    :doh: :tears:

    Which means ... I have managed to breed a $1500 show Boer doe, to either an angora buck, or an unregistered nubian buck ...

    :(

    So I now have oops (saanen x boer x angora) and uh-oh (boer x nubian/angora) kids on the way. should make for some very interesting little ones

    How embarrassing ... bad enough having one oops breeding let alone two ... :oops:

    Oh wow...what a bummer... :shocked: ..I am sorry it was your show boer... :( :hug:
     
  6. That does stick but I have herd of them breeding through fence and so on. I guess if she wants it and he is willing they will get the job done. Not always your fault. I also know a gal that bred this doe to three diff. bucks and she would not take. She got a grade buck on her property a few days while a friend was driving though and she, the doe, broke out and went right over and took all he had to give. LOL

    Well, who knows they might turn out real nice after all?

    I know we look at them as OOPS, but they were meant to be here for a reason. I bet they will be just the cutrest things ever.

    The udder. What do you think?

    I'm just crossing my fingers it was the nubian, not the angora ...

    LOL...Really nice udder for a breed not bred for their milk. Not common to see a Boer doe with a nice teat structure, hope it was the nubian that got her too...though I do think a curly coated goatie with the classic Boer markings would be something adorable.

    thanks liz, she does have a fantastic udder. this will be her second freshening. I actually milked her for a while after she lost the first kid (two legged fox). she does have four teats which I know you dairy guys dont like but I dont mind as they are clean and separate. she has lovely attachments. I personally think meat and fibre does should have quality udders just as much as milk does
