I grabbed some super fast photos at sunset to get this together! We have 8 Boer or Boer cross does bred for March. Most are bred to Miller, a black traditional Fullblood buck who we have since sold. But a few were bred to two of Miller's son's we retained from March 2020. I'll post buck photos after. I feel pretty confident in these due dates (mostly based on marking harness) but there is room for error (a few fence jumps and heats 5 days later - usually not issues for us!)

Pepper Potts due March 7 x Miller
4 years old, single buck & twin bucks previously

Oxalis due March 10 x Miller
3 years old, new to us, previously had buck/doe twins

Roma due March 14 x Miller
6 years old, this will be her 5th kidding! I'm not thrilled with her aging udder attachments so maybe retirement after.

Darling due March 20 x Miller
4 years old and new to us. She has been a real struggle health wise (bought her with extremely poor FAMACHA in hopes to turn her around). Had triplet bucks last year.

Pigeon due March 26 x Miller

Hoping for keeper doelings from Pigeon, Oxalis, Pepper, & Darling to expand the maternal groups of hierarchy. Everybody else can produce meat kids!!

Phew! I wrote too much per usual...

And just for fun, our two keeper doelings from March 2020.

She is extremely closely bonded to her dam and is going to have quite a surprise when Parcel kids!

Man your goats are living the life of luxury with that couch. :heehee:

Can't wait to see all your kids! Pepper Potts has such pretty ears.
Ha! I was so dang proud of myself for snagging that couch free on facebook marketplace. The adults don't love it as much as I was hoping but the yearlings do! And I know young kids will. I've been trying to find a new free couch each winter for the kids to destroy (then I bring it to the transfer station in autumn) but this one is by FAR the fanciest and I can't wait for the ridiculous photos of 6 beefy kids sleeping on it.

Everybody is doing great a few weeks out from kidding now. They are thrilled to have begun their pre-lactation feed rations. I did have one early breeding date of March 4 when the buck lost his apron. I felt confident everybody cycled and was bred later but Roma is giving me a little smidge of doubt. I'll know soon. She hollowed a bit today but she is an older doe so she may just be carrying heavier.
