    So, I thought I would post about a happy ending. We had a rough start to the yr. DH grandfater decided to unload his garded in out goat pens while we weren't home. You know, goats can eat anything. Our Boers were breed a month earlier then the dairy girls and some of the stuff that he gave affected the babies development. So, out of 4 kids we lost two and of course they were does. The next trama came a couple of weeks ago. I had gone to do evening chores and found one of our best does dead. She had been gret earlier in the day. We don't have any kids out of her. She one grand champion dairy goat at our fair last yr.

    So, with all of this going on I was a little nervose with the girls getting close to kidding. Not knowing if I was going to have to face the same problem with that the boers had or if just the 1 1/2 month difference in breeding dates would save us. Well, on Mon. morning at 3 Cream a third freshing 4 yr old had 4 beautiful and healthy kids. She delivered all of them in about 10 min. To top it all off they are full of color and there are 3 does and 1 buck. :biggrin These are the first kids out of our buck. I'm excited to seee the rest.

    Thanks for letting me share this little victory with you. I was really ready for some goldfish.

    And a big thank you to Camille and Kaye for the help and support. :biggrin

    The biggest one with the white belly band is the buck.

    ADORABLE!! So cute!
    I know how you feel- i'm so cautious not to get my hopes up-- this year has been rough. Did have a healthy calf born Sunday a nice vigorous little black bull.

    Thanks guys! Cream does a good job with the spots. Out of 3 kiddings and 3 different bucks she has throne spots. This is her second grey spotted kid. I need to get a shot of the grey does face, it is just beautiful, full of colors.

    To make things even better, Cream at just one day fresh milked 1/2 gallon this am. Who says Nubian's can't milk. :biggrin

    Thanks again guys.

    Congrats on the happy ending. I had a doe kid born just like that little white spotted one, she has grey and chocolate spots all over, weird.
