Here are some pictures of Bluebelle. I don't have a due date on her because my stupid self erased the date she was bred but I do remember it was the second or third week in Dec. So that makes her due really anyday.
Tonight her bag seems to have gotten bigger but not strutted and her ligaments are harder to find but I can still feel them pretty good.
Give me your opinion on when she will go and how many.

Well this was an ooops breeding anyways but I was there and witnessed it and wrote it down on my dry erase board but I was updateing everyones weights on it and accidentily erased her breeding date.
Bluebelle crawled under the roll down door of the barn while I was moving bucks and was bred. Boy some does won't stop at anything.
Oh and she is a First Timer and she turned 1 in Nov. so I think her bag looks great and don't worry about he dark spots on her udder. It isn't an injury its a bad clipping job and I got close to the skin on those parts.

I think she'll have a single or twins. Good luck! You're not alone on the unknown due date issue either. I bought a doe who was bred around the end of December so we're waiting and watching. :D

I was just looking at your website, and I guess i did not realize that she was a fainter. She looks like a full size dairy goat.

By the way, Nice Site.

I only have fainters. I've never seen a dairy goat her size. I thought they were all tall. She's only about 20 inches tall. I dont think she will make it to Monday but Mother's Day is a nice option. Who knows with her being so young (we dont breed fainters (on purpose) until they are at least 1 1/2) and a first timer I may be reading her signs wrong. Her udder sure has grown in 1 day. Will keep you informed.

Well it's 4:22 am and she is pushing. We have presentation of the feet as of right now.
Will update later.

Well it's later. 4:30, a boy (big for a young small goat), black and white with frosting. She seems to be ok. Had to help a little. The shoulders were a little out of kilter so my husband pulled one leg forward which gave the head room to get in position. then he just gently help pull him out. she's pretty swollen but from what I can tell she didnt tear. will update later with pics.
