I have been watching Ellie the last few days because I had a woman out to look at my goats and she predicted that Ellie would kid in 2 weeks....this was last week on Wednesday.

I noticed that she had straw stuck to her vulva so I thought I would check it out and found some mucus...it was dried up on there but looks to be her mucus plug....I thought she already lost it...

I checked her ligs and they are soft but not gone. I checked her udder yesterday and it was soft and mushy feeling. I check her udder a few minutes ago and it was more firm but not full and tight.

We are supposed to be having some bad weather coming soon and I think my friend may be right....I think my doe may kid next week. I will post pics when I get her on the stand...which wont be until I can get help to get her up there. This is her 2nd kidding with me but her 3rd kidding in all. I know she doesn't have anything to do with the gender of the kids but she was bred to 2 different bucks and had a single doeling her first kidding and twins doelings her second kidding...I bred her to my old buck and he sired twin bucklings last year....I am so excited. I think most of the breeders in arkansas are having a buck year....I have 1 buckling on the ground now to my boer doe Sheba...let's hope for doelings out of Ellie again this year!!! Think pink everyone!!!!

Hi everyone....Ellie's ligs are almost completely gone! Udder is strutted and her legs are almost completely straight. She is real puffy in her vulva and kids have dropped! This is an exciting update! I am thinking she will go either today or tomorrow....last year her labor took less than 20 minutes...kids were out about 15 minutes after the string of mucus was visible...Keeping those pink thoughts coming....

At 9:50, Ellie had discharge but it doesnt appear to be stringy. I will be checking on her off and on all night. I went to the movies with hubby and came home to discharge so she is progressing slowly. I still suspect tomorrow but who knows what these does will do....
