With all the suggestions Pam made at the end of last year's devastating birthing season, we have a healthy crop of Boer babies:

Greta had:

breech girl (I don't dare name her because I suspect the 10 year old owner of the stud will want this one.  She's adorable and personality to match)  my favorite
girl (ChunkyMonkey)
boy (Tank)

Dolly had:

Boy (Porker)
boy (solid color brown) my second favorite
girl (tiny - Dolly laid on her)

Paisley had:

girl: no name
Boy: no name
boy:stillborn

Duchess:

Boy: doa
girl: lived 4 minutes
girl: died during night
boy: died during night

Sister:

Girl: no name
Boy: no name

Sister is the FF who was so eager to be a mom that when she was in labor she was practicing on Greta's babies: licking, checking the butt, etc.

Yes, we lost Duchess and all 4 of her babies.  I think that was a freak complicated issue of 1st baby in canal was dead and mom's torn uterus.  Dolly laid on her tiny baby and Paisley's last was stillborn.  BUT,

Stud is 97% Boer and moms are BoerX, except for Greta whose mom was Toggenberg.

Wow!!!  Those are awesome babies.  I just love Sister's baby boy...He's got that wow factor that sends my heart over the roof...absolutely adore his head and color markings.  Dolly's baby boy, I can see why he'd be your favorite, he's stunning.  Did the child choose the baby girl that you like most?  You had an even count of boys/girls this year...that's good.  I still hate it that you lost Dutchess and her 4 babies. 

Those are some gorgeous babies to be very proud of my friend.  You did very well this year.  Congratulations.
