    She's 50% Galloway 25% Highland 25% Angus. That makes sense. If we still have her around in January we might run her with the others to get bred. It's hot in AZ and we prefer around October calves.

    I get that. I have meat goats and try to stagger kids so I'm not worrying about all of them in a short span of time.

    Years back, with a herd of about 50 meaties, I had eight does kid within a 2 hr time frame! They were in the field and I just kept seeing them go down and push! Think a domino chain :lol: Generally they were up in a smaller area by the barn with cameras but, out that day and they sure took advantage of me!

    With only a dozen does now, I prefer hand bred. This year a new, young buck made his way in 2X. So, while calendar is marked -- not positive how many at each date.:idunno Time will tell. It's all good.

    Thought I'd update. It's been 22 days and guess who's screaming her head off again. :) Mystery solved.

    Same here. I hate when I find an interesting old thread through a search and it ends on a cliffhanger. Or if a thread describes some weird wound or something and they say "I'll get pics later" and the thread ends there forever. :( I like the weird wound pics. Is that weird? :D
