    Well while I'm sitting around waiting for my first doe to kid I thought I might as well start up a kidding thread! Main Attraction, (Nubian) is on day 147...I'm totally excited about her kids! She's definitely getting closer, ligaments are loosening and her udder is growing, but I think she might hold out a few more days.

    Meanwhile...we had a little heifer born yesterday! :) Isn't she adorable??

    Thanks guys! No signs of her being any closer...lol I'm sure she wants to make me wait as long as possible.

    Stacey, I just have 14 bred this year actually that's Nubians and Boers, and pretty spread out for the most part, so maybe it won't be as hectic as it has been in the past. :D

    lol well it doesn't seem like very many!! I trimmed my herd down a bit trying to focus on quality instead of quanity...and the feed bill was getting kinda high. :)

    Thanks Shivonne! I'm hoping too! Just did a late night check, still can just barely feel ligaments.

    Thanks! Okay looks like sometime today for babies!! Her udder grew overnight, and her ligaments are gone now, not seeing any contractions yet, but should be soon! :)
