    My sweet girl is a FF, she was 145 days two days ago. Can anyone tell by looking at this photo of her this morning, if our wait is soon to be over? ImageUploadedByGoat Forum1489071617.514447.jpg

    Looks like she has a lot filling to do still. It'll probably be a while.

    When was she with a buck? Do you have a buck on site or did you do stud service on a different farm?

    She was with him on Oct 13, I witnessed it. However, we did leave her with him for about a week after that also. I have him here.

    So, I suppose it's possible that she didn't take when we thought, although all the signs were there. Now I'm nervous lol. Guess we will just keep a close eye on her. Is it fairly normal for Nigerians to go past day 145? Or does she look way off that date?

    It's normal for them to go day 142/143 - 153 or so. Honestly I think the day 145 due date bit just means the range in which they go is larger than standard goats' and they tend to go sooner rather than later. So was she running with the buck?

    She could always fill her udder later. That happens every now and then.

    Sometimes they do fill a lot in the last 24-28 hrs before kidding.

    I agree with everyone.

    It is so hard to say, but all we can do is wait and watch.
    Her udder can definitely grow overnight, I wouldn't worry just yet. ;)

    I have several does that will come in heat and stand for the buck, but then about a week or so later will be in heat again and stand again. So, if they were together for a week it that could be what happened.
    I wouldn't worry

    Doesn't look close at all to me, but sometimes they surprise you.

    I have another question. When she is laying down, her vulva is open about two fingers wide. I can see something red just inside of it. Nothing is protruding out of it though. Is this normal?

    It depends as that can description can include a large amount of stuff. Sometimes they can have a slight prolapse which isn't something to panic over.

    Yes TBS, that's exactly what I keep saying lol. She's had mucus off and on for over a week now. I love the babies, but hate the waiting game lol. I believe she lost her ligaments this afternoon, though she really has me doubting any knowledge I may have had
