I have four girls potentially bred: Evelyn, Margaret, Bonnie and Apricot. Bonzai is the buck. He is a purebred Alpine - papered.

First up is Evelyn. She is two years old. She is 1/4 Mini La Mancha, 1/8 Nubian, 1/4 Oberhaslie and 1/8 Alpine. She weighs about 67 lbs. Her udder is big and round. Ligaments are getting soft and she's eating like there is no tomorrow. I am thinking that this week she may have twins. She has a very nice udder. It's nicely attached, symetrical and has lovely teats.

Second, I think is Apricot. She is Evelyn's mama. She is 1/2 mini La Mancha and 1/2 Alpine. Mama is her Mama, Houdini is her daddy. She weighs about 65 lbs. She is 4 years old. She's maybe 3 - 4 weeks out. She usually has singles or twins. Looks to be having twins this time.

Next up is Margaret. She is two years old. She is 1/2 Alpine, 3/8 Oberhaslie, 1/8 Nubian. She weighs about 180 lbs. I'm not sure when she is due. But she is just starting to udder up. Maybe twins.

Last is Bonnie. Also a two year old. She is Mama's granddaughter. 1/2 Alpine, 3/8 Oberhaslie and 1/8 Nubian. She weighs about 125 lbs. She is just starting to udder up and looks to be having a single.

Wednesday morning at 5am, Evelyn gave birth (breach) to a bucking and a Dowling. I assisted. We had a huge rain and wind storm Tuesday night. She missed it.
