    I hope to keep this thread better organized! I will try to remember to make notes in this original for pages with pertinent info. We get to talking (which I love!), and then I try to look back and find info someone said or birth weights i wrote here but forgot in my book and what a mess haha!!

    After much debate, I have adjusted Pearls partner. Ultimately, I dont know Simon's milking lineage. At least i know Oakleys dam, and he is sired by Pholia Farm UB Pendelton.Pearl FF with a gorgeous udder, but poor capacity; I was told not to hold that against her, especially knowing her Dam's high production levels. So, if her production isnt where I want it, at least if she has a doeling, I can retain her and check for improvements from Oakleys side.

    Wow, I don't know how I missed this thread. You have great looking goats but a simply beautiful daughter! She looks like a real sweetie. Of course that being said, all we see is a snap shot and she may be altogether different otherwise (I had/have one of those). :hide Paint the Clouds is one handsome stud!

    So... should I be worried? Not a single doe has cycled since I started exposing September 1st. Am I even able to hand breed Nigerians?

    You should be able to hand breed them with no problem. No chance they were with a buck of their own choosing earlier? Are they with the buck or just near them? I like to keep them separate and then wait for them to starting pining near the buck fence line; it seems if I put them in the pen with the buck I miss the heats entirely.
