    We had 9 kids born here between yesterday at 3:30 p.m. and today at 4:15 a.m. All the babies and mommas are doing well.

    Mercy's kids. See how much smaller her doe kid is compared to Lark's single buck kid?

    And also Flicka's buck kid.

    My Ben looks a lot like Flicka's buck. What do you call the color/pattern? Ben has the dark stripe down his back but it is broken by a white band around his belly then continues to his tail.

    Love all the baby pic's. I'm a sucker for long ears. Ben likes his rubbed when he doesn't feel good. He leans into me and won't let me leave. He was a bottle brat so he really loves his "mama". :laugh: And "mama" is the only one who can (put up with him) make him feel better.

    Nubians really don't have specific patterns. So, I would say he is reddish brown and white with frosted ears and muzzle. Nothin' too fancy! LOL! Such funny creatures goats are. :greengrin:

    Me too! :love:

    Congrats on all the kids.

    Curious what do you do with all the buck kids?

    Thanks Stacey! :) Most, if not all, will be castrated and sold as wethers. I may leave Marla's buck kid intact. She has such a gorgeous udder and it milks, too. My only complaint about her is her size, or the lack thereof.

    Ben is on the small size as well. He will be a year old in a month. Are they just slow to mature?

    It could be that the lines are just slow to mature or they are just plain smaller animals in general.
