    Hi, I'm Rence, and I'm new to this board. I have five 6 month old Nubians, but I also have a five year old Nubian/Alpine cross (her name is Hali) who is due to kid next week. This will be my very first kidding and I'm very excited (and a bit nervous) :D I've been a goat mama for only a few months.

    I plan on milking Hali for the family. She's never been milked regularly before, but she has been milked on occassion by her previous owners. Right now, I'm milking a Jersey (who was never milked before either), so I figure, I got the hard part down, right? :biggrin

    Nice to meet you Rence. I have a FF (first freshener) Alpine doe that is due to kid soon as well. I've never watched/assisted with a kidding either. Very excited/nervous. Glad to know there is someone like me here. I have learn a great deal on this forum in a very short amount of time. Still have TONS more to learn though. I think you will find this forum to be VERY helpful and informative. Welcome!

    :welcome

    Wow, thank you, all, for the warm welcomes! It's sweet and I feel a lot less "foreign". I'm hoping to learn a lot here. I don't know any goat mamas except for the couple that sold me my current babies, and I call her all the time :)

    The little guy in the avatar is my buckling "Vinnie".
