    Eight hours on the road, but WELL worth it. Highly recommend the breeders! Scarlett didn't make a peep the whole trip and is settling in her stall well. Her belly is HUGE! [​IMG]

    Mitzy - I can't wait until I'm posting baby pics, either!! The anticipation kills me every time.

    She has been milked in the past and is reportedly a great girl for it. Her teat size blows me out of the water, being used to Nigis and Pygmies. I can't wait! From what I gather, I'll get a least a gallon a day from her.

    [​IMG] I know the feeling as I drove 4 hr 1 way to get Rose and she was a dream comming back...yep 4 hr again took the whole day to go and get her. You will love milking her and want more larger girls too as I have...I now have 3 larger does and cant wait either for babies...[​IMG] Glad she is safe and sound and home... [​IMG]
