well, I have 4 bred does, 2 are due the 11th of this month, march.... it is the 16th and still no babies, ligiments are pretty gone but felt that way since before the 11th. I went to check ginger and dixie, my husband checked and said that dixie was leaking a little so I went to check and dixie was not leaking now, but ginger had the string of mucas. Dixie is huge, I would say if she didn't have triplets I would be suprised, she is a triplet. Ginger on the otherhand is smaller and I would say maybe 1 baby.... twins ??? who knows. I am going to check again, last spring I had my first experience with my saanan doe, she had the string of mucas and didn't have her babies until a week later!!! And even waited until I was home, it was my husbands and my wedding aniversary, april 24th! These new goats ginger and dixie are boer goats. I don't know if they are different than the saanan's but I guess all goats are different in their own ways. I just hope I have some healthy babies. My neighbor lost 5 babies this kidding season, they bought new goats already bred, but were due in december and january and of course they had them on the coldest night of the year, and they 1 had triplets, lost 2, and the other twins, and lost 1. then a few weeks later her pygmy goats had babies, and they lost them too. total of 5. they were pretty sad. I am glad it is warmer now, and my goats are in a nice warm barn. Sooooo... I am off to check on them again, I forgot to check the udders last time I checked! Silly me!!! the pictures are my girls, dixie is the brown headed boer, and ginger is the redish solid color boer, the other 2 are sharabelle and Angel (angel is my first baby) they are both due in may.
