    So I decided it was time to start a kidding thread- she is day 120 already!

    Nellie is an old girl turning 10 this July! But she is a very very special goat. She earned Platinum milker status and milked over 1600 lbs in 305 days! AND she still has a banger udder- it looked the same this summer as it did at 6 years old here: http://www.proctorhill.com/nelliepage.htm

    I cannot wait to see what she gives us bred to our new PromisedLand buck Salvatore and these will be his first kids!
    All doe kids will be retained and we will also be retaining the first buckling.

    She had a single buck last year- and unfortunatly Im not expecting more than that this year either. We ultrasounded and deifnately saw one baby, but couldnt be sure if there was a second in there or not.

    She lost her 'form' so she always has those saddlebags...and she was not at all impressed with me since I was worming her/cdt&T/bose and trimming her feet right before these pictures which accounts for her hunched up appearance :roll: ...but without further ado, here she is!

    Nellie is at 139 today and moved up to the maternity ward with her pal Char (due one day after her) her ligaments already feel low, but Im confident she is going to hang onto that baby (ies) for awhile yet. Speaking of that baby- I felt him/her today, Nellie is so soft in the belly area I literally could feel legs and even a head when I pressed on her side down low. It was neat :)

    Come one Nel, a buck and a doe - moonspots and wattles would be a bonus, but I will take whatever I can get! :)
    New pictures soon.

    Unfortunatly I would be surprised if I get twins! Don't let those saddlebags fool you- this girl has had a lot of kiddings (turning 10 this year) and lost her form *shhhh dont tell her I said that!*
