    Hi Everyone! I am (kind of) back from my long absence. We had a crazy kidding season with our first ever quints and sextuplets. We had 37 kids born in 2 weeks. That was just a little crazy! We've also had a lot of things happening in our family making it difficult for me to get to the computer much. Anyway... I thought I'd share some pictures of the babies. Here's a link to my kids album on photobucket. You can get to the different breedings to see all the kids, by clicking the links on the side. http://s181.photobucket.com/albums/x29/ ... 09%20Kids/

    I'll post each doe as an individual post...

    Arthur had triplets, 2 does and one buckling. Sire is Echo Hill's Shining Star.
    One of the doelings, Betty:

    The other doeling, Molasses - she had the funniest ears! They were very long, but stuck straight out. She could let them hang, but they usualyl looked like this:

    Daisy had twin bucks. Bad girl. But, they were both BEAUTIFUL and went as breeders so I guess it's not too bad... Sire is Echo Hill's Shining Star

    Grace had buck/doe twins but the buckling didn't make it. The doeling is gorgeous though! Sire is Echo Hill's Ulysses S. Grant *B.

    Molly had QUINTS, so I'll post her's in another thread as well. The sire of these kids is Echo Hill's Ulysses S. Grant *B
    Here's the one picture I have of the 4 boys before the belted one passed away (the doeling didn't make it that far:()

    One of my favorite does, Nutmeg, had twin doelings. Good girl Nutty!!! I had way too many bucklings born so was pretty thrilled to get these two beautiful doelings even though I had wanted to keep a doeling and a buckling from this breeding. Sire is Echo Hill's Ulysses S. Grant *B. Oh, and I am retaining both of these girls.

    I expected triplets from Windy as she was so HUGE before she kidded. Well, she had one HUGE buckling. We called him Goliath. Sire is Echo Hill's Ulysses S. Grant *B

    Zephyr was the last doe to kid this year. Thankfully she had three doelings in an attempt to even out our buck/doe ratio. Sire is Echo Hill's Shining Star.

    Wow, Eliya! You sure do have some beautiful Mini Nubians. I love the airplane ears:). Have you had luck on very many quintuplets all surviving?
