    Ahhh! Nicole(Quarter Mile Nubians, where we got Cass and Flicka) just called this morning and said that she kidded out three does yesterday...two sets of trips and one set of twins...every last one of them a buck kid! :shocked: She goes to school 30 hrs a week, works part time, kidding out does, and is going to have a baby in a couple of weeks!!! I have no idea how she does it! :shrug: Anyways, she is too busy to promote these buck kids like she wants to...she is offering them at $450 each. She also said that she would probably be selling a couple of does and would give a us discount if we buy two or more. I don't know what to do! We already have a buck kid AND a doe kid reserved from Holly(Hoanbu)! We aren't made of money, but I am sure they will be worth it...and I don't want to pass up such a good deal like this! http://www.autumnacresfarm.com/Nubian%20Sr.%20Does.htm Lilu X Roulette trips, Jubilee X Sin trips, and Mava X Lance twins. If we do get one I am leaning toward the Lilu X Roulette bucks as Roulette has done some awesome things for Nicole's herd and did some awesome things for Precious when we bred her to him(of course she gave us two buck kids! :roll: ). Also, Flicka is Roulette's granddaughter....good line breeding. I think Jubilee's bucks are out of the picture because we already have a Sin son(and daughter). And we haven't seen much out of Lance yet. Also, for a doe..I am going to try and see about Maylin(FF page). I've liked her since the first day I seen her!

    I am going to have to do some serious thinking...I am leaning towards yes and so is my Mom. I am going to have to pray about it...so far...I am feeling good about it. :)

    Man that is a hard decision. Good luck with your choice. If you really like that doe though I say go for it. :wink:

    We are getting a Lilu buckling!!!!! We are probably also going to get Maylin...it will depend on how everybody freshens. She will only be $300-350! Nicole told me that two of the bucklings are butterscotch in color..both have frosted ears and muzzle and one has a big white crown on his head with some white spots on his side. The 3rd is just your average brown with frosted ears. I'll get which ever one is nicest...even if it is the average brown one. :)

    Thanks everyone!!!

    I am waiting to hear back from Nicole and see if we can go get one on Saturday. The doe will be brought to a show...because she isn't due until mid March and Nicole would like to get all these buck kids out of her hair now! :lol:

    Okay..this is what Nicole told me about Lilu's boys. They have nice long ears...you can tell which three are Lilu's because of their ears. She said that they are flat boned, very long, level, and big boned. They sound just awesome!!! :leap: I can't wait to see them!!

    Oh and Nicole also said that Lilu's boys are so tall that she had to raise the heat lamp because those three are so tall! :lol: :drool:

    1st choice buck: Bella X Easy, 2nd choice buck: Misty X Status.
    1st choice doe: Sibby X Rev, 2nd choice doe: Gillette X Rev. I so want our 1st choices!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our 2nd choices are really nice, too, but look at all that great linebreeding we can do with our 1st choice kids! Gee...we already have names picked out!(HEY!! Typing that made me think...I gotta think up a name for one of Lilu's bucklings!! I love naming goats!) 1st choice doeling: Hoanbu Possibly Perfection, 1st choice buckling: Hoanbu Easy Money. :)

    I am just about ready to do a bunch of this: :leap: :leap: :leap: :leap: :leap: :leap: :leap:

    No....Nicole said before she makes any final decisions she wants to see everyone freshened. We are going to get the buckling this Saturday...just talked to Nicole a little bit ago. I'll look at Maylin and the yearlings then...then I'll put my dibs down. :greengrin:
