Next was Ellie May, an Angora, with a white buck kid, Percival, born on the 30th.
Third was Daphne, another Angora, with a white buck kid, Lancelot, on the 31st August.

Next was Levanna, a third Angora, with a white doe kid, Princess, on the 1st of September.

Next, our first dairy doe for the year, Heidi, a Saanen X, kidded on the 13th with a lovely cream doe kid, Silkeslen. (now sold and named Tilly)

The day after, September 14th, our next chubby little Boer X doe, Flopsy, kidded with twins - pure white buck and doe, Mahli and Mushi. The photo above is her with her newborn twins :D

And the day after we also had a kidding - the last Angora for the year, Abby, with a single white buck kid, Galahad, born 15th September.

Our next dairy doe, a purebred, registered Toggenburg doe named Sunny (and actually herself our first herdbook registered Togg doe kid) kidded on the 28th September with twin doe kids! Both purebred Toggenburgs, so brown with white markings, Sunflower Girl and Sharifs Sunnygirl.

Pookie, our chubby little Toggenburg X girl, was second last, with our only triplets for the year! Born October 30th, one Toggenburg coloured buck, Tornado, one lovely gold Sable Saanen coloured buck, Hurricane, and one beautiful white/grey Sable Saanen coloured doe, Suger Cane
