    I have this goat...maybe she’s bloated but I wonder if she’s pregnant. What do y’all think?

    Just kidding! She’s due within the next week or so. Please excuse the mess- it was cleaning day.

    :weee I can’t wait to see her kids. She looks like a sweet doe.

    I guess you will be having a kidding thread this year? :D

    Who’s the sire? Pygmy? Kiko?

    She's bred to Conan, the Kiko. He's already given me two doelings out of a Kinder doe. I hope he keeps up the trend! My Kinder sire seems to father nothing but bucklings… ugh.

    I want twins... just twins...only twins. Did I mention that I prefer twins? Ya get a nice even udder (usually) and plenty of milk left over for me. She was my main milker last year and I only dried her off in mid November. This doe is pure love. When a Nubian gives you her heart you know you are loved. Just in case you can't tell - I kinda like her!

    You are too funny FEM! I was going to ask for a standing pic to tell for sure! :lol:

    I’m guessing 3:hide...2 bucks and 1 doe. You’ll have to keep us posted. I bet they will be terribly adorable!

    Fem, do you do pure Kiko animals as well? I've been considering getting a pb Kiko buck to replace my pb Lamancha buck for next years kids to add some meat to their frames.

    I think she is GORGEOUS. Can’t wait to see her kids. My guess is two little does.
