    Well my nigi dwarf doe Willow will be at 150 days preggo on Nov. 9th,that is of course if she took when I saw the breeding. She is bred to my reg. buck Red Lotus MD Samuri Jack. Her udder started the beginning of the month so I am pretty sure she took. This will be the first kids born on my place and I am so excited!!! I have not noticed any white or clear discharge yet though. Anyway, I will try and get pics up tomorrow of the proud soon to be mommy. I also have another doe due Dec. 5th but I will start her thread a little later. Just wanting to share my excitement.

    Ok so here are the pics as promised. Do you think we are on track for a Nov. 9th kidding or do you think she has a bit longer. She is not a FF. When I first got her she had just weaned kids. So here is Willow

    Yeah I wrote down the time I saw the breeding but I left her with the buck for 3months just in case. So you think about how much longer?

    I say you will be pulling your hair out as you wait!

    I actually think she has a month more to go -- but I have been surprised before when a goat suddenly fills up on its owner and proves me wrong.

    A couple more weeks to a month would just be my luck! I am so excited I will have no hair if I have to wait another month LOL! But just so long as she gives birth at some point I guess I will live(I hope) :)

    Willow kidded yesterday morning at 1130am. She had a buckling & a doeling. The buck was huge & hit the ground just as it started to rain. We started to walk willow back to the shed to get out of the rain & on the way back she had her doe. It was so exciting! I helped her dry the kids off. All are doing wonderful & i will have pics up this evening.
