    She's already a lot bigger than she ever got last year. She kidded with a single doe kid last year. So, what do you think?

    I'm not sure, I'm a novice to goats still. That's about the time my LaMancha is due, so we'll be posting baby pics at the same time! [​IMG] My doe is 3 1/2 yrs old, single, twins, single, so she may have twins this time. She looks a little bigger than my doe, but yours looks like a Boer. Congrats! Let us know when the baby (babies!) come

    Quote:Yes, she's 7/8ths Boer. The other 1/8th is Nubian. It is surprising me how much rounder she is getting this time. It seems like she gets bigger everyday. She hasn't reached the miserable stage yet, though. She's bred to our registered Boer buck, Tigger, who carries red and paint genes. I can't wait to see what she has!
