Well, it's time for an update. I've been busy and sick the past few days.
Tuesday one of our Boer/Nubian does, "Buttermilk", kidded to a buckling and doeling. Beautiful little kids. The buckling is a paint with a lot of white, and the doeling is pure white. At first I thought she was albino, but then decided not as she does not have red eyes but has blue eyes! I really have no clue where she got the blue eyes from as it is not in her lines. I think she is just so cute though.
Now, we have a break from kidding! I am so glad to have a break. Right when most people are just starting kidding, I am pretty much ending ;). I have one first freshener due around mid-April, and then nothing till August when I have 2 does due (since I just bred them). Anyway, a break is very nice!
We are now milking about 20 does, 2x a day, and getting a lot of milk. We also have 7 Mini Nubian doelings (we are keeping 6), 1 Alpine buckling (keeping him), two 75% Boer bucklings and two 75% Boer doelings (for sale, but maybe sold). All those are bottle kids.
For dam raised kids, we have 5 Boer doelings and 2 Boer bucklings on their moms.
The weather has been SO nice lately! And now they are calling for snow tomorrow night and Sunday. . . I thought winter was over with! We'll see ;).
Time to go. Have a good evening!
