Well, the last of my four boers Allie as a first freshener presented me with a single buckling.

Next up, is the prolific and beautiful Dragonfly.she has had 11 kids over the last three years. It will be interesting to see what I get this year. She has a beautiful udder arch and produces over 12 lb of milk a day. She is bred to my new buck Woest-Hoeve SM Sean Boon. Since his dam and his sires' Dam took reserve and best udder at the national show last year and are both above the 90th percentile iniproduction, I am excited to see what I get.

Anxious to see what you get from this breeding! I have a weakness for Nubians, though I don’t currently own any.

Me too, of course I only get to see structure upfront. It will be a long wait for the udders.


So what do you have?

I have Nigerians and two dry yearling Lamanchas from SBC and GW. I just bought two F2 Mini Lamanchas last night. I have a lead on a Mini Buck. Basically, it’s the foundation for a Mini Lamancha program while having some Nigerians for off-season milk to insure that we have a constant supply for our daughter with extensive medical needs.

Awards, but she produces a lot of really good milk.
Often the milk is better than the award! AND she should get an award for those quads!!:D

I love Nubians. Years back raised fullblood Boer and used many Nubians for both cross breeding and registered embryo implants for Boers. Way back when Boer were "new" :D =D

Now I keep Saanen, Nubian & crosses. Bucks are both fullblood. It is my intent to add a few Boer to the farm, since I decided I like the meat. Lot smaller than a cow. :lol:

Sorry you lost your beautiful doeling. It's so tough to accept. I know. :hugs

she does deserve an award for the quad especially when you consider that she has never had more than twins and was 6 this year. She's a great doe. She's milking over a gallon a day started that at four days fresh She rocks!

Two my absolutely stunned amazement a doe that has never had less than triplets and usually has quads had a single doemng yesterday. of course this is the second year in a row bizarrely enough that she has kidded on April fool's Day last year it was in the snow and ice in the afternoon this year at least she had a good day for it.
At least if I had to get a single I am very happy that it was a DOELING! I had high hopes for her since she usually has so many bread to my new book, but I will not be greedy. :celebrate
:weee

Well, yes -- AT LEAST a doeling!!:D And lovely, at that.

I had 2 mini Nubians a while back. Bought as mom & daughter on side. Mom had trips next time -- and everytime after. Dtr had trips from get go --3 yrs straight and always 3 bucklings!! The mom normally had bucklings, also -- but, one year slipped a doeling in the mix. :lol: I almost ripped her tail off, checking & re checking. I still have her and at 2 she will be a FF soon. Hope not boys. Looks like twins in there. The boys helped pay the feed bill from sales :idunno

yes in the last 3 or she had triplet quad quad and then this single :huh but last year she had three bucklings and a doeling and you're right the bucklings pay the feed bill since you can sell them off. But if I had to get a single at least it's not another single buckling. It also eliminates the need for me to decide what to do. I paid good money to have fancy buck, and I don't know what he's producing yet nor do I need the competition at this point.
