    Me again :greengrin:

    Ya know what it's like, sitting in a room with nothing to do ... no goat to go kiss... so I figured I'd make some new threads :wink:

    well why not???!!!

    So... just wondering whether people usually "bounce" their goats' bellies when they're pregnant? I mean, when the goats are pregnant. Not the people. And what do you usually feel with empty does as opposed to bred does? At what stage in the pregnancy?

    Bouncing Demi's belly feels a lot of resistance and quite "hard" though, no movement.
    Bouncing Harmie's belly feels soft and squooshy and no resistance.

    You know what's funny, I don't bounce till after the doe is kidding either and everytime I have bounced the doe has been done, so I still don't know what it feels like to bounce with a kid still in there!
