    Here is our herd Matriarch, Sugar. She is due, if memory serves, July 20th, altho we NEVER see her get bred and she has silent heats...so this is just an estimation based on 'discharge' leading us to believe she was bred.

    She is bred to Billy Boy Blue, a repeat breeding. Last year she gave us a gorgeous buckling by BBB, it's a super nice pairing.

    Yeah, I'm a picture geek...I've got all the pics haha!

    Here she is about 20 days before kidding with a single last year:

    Here she is the day before she kidded with twins time before last:

    As you can see, she's a stout girl and is also obese anyway, so I just never know what she's going to do.

    :roll: I'm tellin' ya! I was SURE there would be two in there, SURE! I had to pull the darn buckling he was so, so big. I only pray that doesn't happen again - it was one of those 'hands on the kid, feet on the doe's butt' pulls. No fun. This doe is just, well, big bellied. She's given us 2 singles and 2 sets of twins, so she likes to keep us guessing!

    She is a stout girl! And wide so I can imagine the guessing you do with her! Hopefully she gives you two teeny girls this time around....no pulling!

    What a lovely doe! She reminds me of a smaller furrier version of my Cowbell. I love her! Can't wait to see her kid(s).

    Ligs are finally softening on this doe. I think she just has one in that big belly again, either that or she's hiding two very, very well.

    :hair: Wellllllll...I was updating records Sunday, and found a second note in Sugar's file that she might have been in season again and due around 8/15. Her ligs have been soft, udder building this whole time, but we're not there yet.

    I think someone is trying to keep us on our toes-could that be Sugar?!?! That's why it's best to write down every single date possible.
