On 10/3/08 my doe herd broke into the Orchard Pen. Normally during breeding season I try my best to have a Nubian buck paired with a Boer buck...so that I have a chance of telling at birth who the kids are out of. In this case, however, it was my two Nubian bucks and my Boer dud. 4 does were in heat......Over half the herd was already bred and four does just happened to be in heat that day. Argh! Three have kidded thus far. All with buck/doe twins. Three of the does were Boer cross does and one was my Nubian doe, Ursula. Ursula had a very striking doeling and a buckling that is almost identical to last year's buckling out of Rudy-P. However, the eyes are all Achilles. The vacant dopey look is all Achilles, so who knows without DNAing them...and in order to record that striking doeling I will have to DNA them. None of the kids are polled. At least I can be sure of who the daddy is to a polled kid. With only one Polled buck it makes it a lot easier. The last doe settled to that fiasco is in early labor currently. She is a Boer cross doe. I have got to work on fencing for breeding season this year. I have two solid penalty boxes finally. As long as there are no calves in it I'm good for when I hand breed. Ah well. I will post pictures of the kiddos this afternoon. You'll see quite a bit of black. That is what I get for having two Black Nubian herdsires.
