    yes. Daisy is 3 1/2 years old. If she was in fact bred last week, he is a BEAUTIFUL ND.

    Going to bowling - nighty night

    Raven is due February 10. She's a month pregnant and is already looking big. I'll be happy with anything she has :D We're keeping all her does and a buck. :D
    Molly is due Feb. 21
    Kadi is due Feb. 22
    Caramel is due Feb. 23 or 24
    and Mary is due Feb. 25.
    I'll probably regret breeding them like that when the kidding storm hits :lol:

    I just set up a breeding pen yesterday and put 4 does in with my blue-eyed ND, Starbuck....usually I wait until November for my breedings but last year March was nicer than April. Hopefully we won't have any blizzard kids in '08!

    Last year I had 7 does kid over a 4 day period...it was crazy!!! It was fun, though, and we didn't lose any kids in spite of snowing, blowing, and freezing temps. Of course this was all happening over Easter weekend and I missed all the festivities. It was worth it in the end...but I don't think I'll breed that many at one time ever again!

    I always do it just to get kidding over with. This year the biggest bunch was 12 does over 5 days this last February. THAT was interesting, lol.

    Raven came into heat today :cry: Which means she isn't bred to the buck I wanted :cry: Oh well.
    That means Caesar got a date, then I Gertie and April decided to come into heat so Brutus got 2 dates. So now March 13 I'll have 3 does kidding :D

    Aww man! :eek: What a bummer Sarah! :(

    We have 2 due in Jan. One is the 15th the other is the 23rd. Thought we had a second on due on the 15th, but noticed she was in heat this morning. Don't know if it is a false heat or what, because she was bred back in August and we kept a very close eye on her when 3 weeks came around and absolutely nothing! Either she has been having silent(SP?) heats or this one is false and I am praying that it is, because we wanted some Sr. kids! The other two are having Kiko kids. Another one that is due Feb. 20th-22nd. She didn't come back in heat on day 21 like she did the first time, but I'll wait until day 27 passes...then I'll be more happy, because you know goats! They like to keep your hopes up and then torture you! :lol: :roll: Another one that should be coming back in heat in a couple days if she didn't settle. And waiting to see if Flicka will be big enough to breed by the end of Nov. Oh yeah....Bella came back in heat for the 3rd time! :cry: We would like to try some homeopathic(SP?) stuff on her next time around if she doesn't settle this time. :) Maybe that will work. I'll pray that it does! :D

    Alrighty! Enough rambling! Gotta go to bed! :shock: :lol:
