All right, as our new goat babies are born, lets post our results here. Everyone with babies stop by and post their numbers. Use this format:
Number of does:
Make sure you double space so that the format works. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone's having. I think it could be valuable info for all of us.

Well...about all I can post is:
Number of does: 2
Number of kids (expected): 0!!
I didn't breed my does this past fall :-(!!! So darn much going on around here with elderly parents, etc. in state and out...just decided to take a "milking" year off in case we had to drop everything and leave. And it's really depressing me to think that I'll have no fresh milk and butter this coming spring!!!!!

Number of does: 6
Deaths: 1 miscarriage at approx. 4 to 5 weeks early.
Comments: Goats can have multiple births sired by more than one buck. I was running my girls with a purebred LaMancha and a Boer/Nubian cross. One doe had twins, with the female very obviously LaMancha and the little male as long-eared as any Boer or Nubian I've seen.
