Yep, its me again! Her udder doubled in size since she began to build one Christmas Eve, she already got her birthing trim of her tail and udder and to me she has dropped...at least her hips seem more prominent and her belly is lower. Hope she waits til Tuesday afternoon...she'll be at 147 and Im off on Wednesday! Her ligaments are not as easy to find either and she's had a bit of the crusties on her tail.




What do ya think? Am I going to get babies this week?

I am going to throw a dart out there and say it will happen on Monday. I have three does that are all holding out on me. Mine do not have the bag that she does, but they do not always get one anyway. They are opening up so much that I am afraid that the babies will just slip right out. :greengrin:

Go Binky . Enjoy your last kidding girl... watch out.. your mama's gonna put duct tape on your cha cha!!!!
Hee Hee!! Binky, I hope will give me a few more kids over the next few years, it's Bootsie that'll have the duct tape on her cha-cha after this kidding! Guess I have 1 too many girls with a "B" name :lol:

I just have this hopeful feeling that the second breeding Binky had was a false heat, I don't think she'll be able to hold out til the 28th, do you?

Well, she's had her supper and settled into her stall very nicely tonight. The movement in her belly is like little pokes everywhere and her pooch is so far out there that she's been pushing it against the wall! Hope she can wait a couple days.

She looks exactly like my girl, Daisy, as far as signs.

Udders are about the same - were supposed to be due the 28th, crusties on the tail (for 4 days now) major swelling in the back end, STILL EATING - agh! This is killing me!

So liz - who will get babies first??? LOL hehehe!

My girls who are due the end of this month look like that and they started bagging around Christmas too. Good luck!

The way it sounds Allison, you are gonna get babies first!

Ashley, I am so hoping she goes this week, we are having some wierd weather here, and it's gonna be in the 50s and 60s this week...ideal temps for winter kiddings!!
Her udder is very tight up front and bulged out in the back...is this normal? I'm used to nigi crosses and not dealing with a purebred udder and "conformation" is confusing...is she supposed to have such high attachment in the front?

Thanks, I am anxious to see what she'll turn out like, this is her second freshining, the first her kids died from the cold and I don't think she was being milked so she basically built an udder just to dry off shortly after. I was actually thinking there was something wrong with it, good to know that its what it should be. BTW...She has me back and forth on wether she'll kid this week, maybe it's just being impatient for kids that has me thinking every little detail is a sign. :lol:

At least Daisy looks un comfortable!! Binky just has the very swollen cha cha and bigger udder. She ate all of her grain tonite and went to town on the hay...Allison, deep breaths and take it hour by hour or even day by day! HA! Easier said than done..lol.

LOL! You are funny Liz!

I would love to see mine, yours, and Alyssa's all go on the same day! That would just be awesome!

But, you know, I am now thinking, I don't know if I am going to want to get rid of these little ones, as they have put me through this much so far and they are the first babies born on the ranch - guess we will wait and see!
