    Hello all! Here is my girl Ellie. She is an Oberhasli and has been pawing the last couple of days, acting strange, and today her ligaments have disappeared. she just doesnt look ready to me from her backside. what do yall think? i have never done this before (umm... not that i am really doing anything at all!)

    She doesn't look ready but there are never guarantees.

    i thought it might be today since she has been acting odd and seems to have lost her ligaments. of course she is acting more normal today as if nothing is going on.

    I don't think she's ready yet. Do you have a due date for her?

    Well that doesn't help. I definitely say this month. Sorry I can't help that much.

    They are so cute! Congratulations!

    I hope the kids will be able to nurse off of those teats. ;)

    I have a doe with teats like that. The kid runs to me and nudges my hand so I will "help" him latch on! He knows how, now, but he still likes help!

    Your babies are cute!

    This morning the babies seem to have full bellies and mama isnt extremely full of milk, so i think they nursed fine throughout the night. The vet is coming this afternoon to check on them and to ultrasound my other ff. this is fun!
