    I had a buck running with my does all summer into early fall, well now I know I saw him bred 2 of my does, and then theres Brandy, well she never came into heat and when posted pictures of her some said she was bred.
    so this am I go to out feed up and what do I see, a thin stream of fluid liquid coming out of her, feel the ligs, just about gone, she is up eating like nothing is going on. as of tonite no change, no more liquid either well she was talking softly just a bit more so maybe soon.
    this is a suprise to me though I really thought she would be my last one to go.
    i will keep you update

    no change on Brandy this am, no more goo no pawing just yawning and being very lazy udder full but not tight, she dont usually get a tight udder until after she kids.
    I moved her into her own pen as Holly kept pushing her around to much for my likings.

    here are some pictures of her today tell me what you think?

    still no kids :?

    about 11 last night I went out I swear I could feel a kid kicking buy her ribs so now I dont knw what is going on. her ligs are gone and she has clear goo coming out of her not alot kinda like a childs runny nose

    this as I went to check her she cant lift her back end by herself, I am hoping the kid(s) are just pinching a nerve, accually this is what I believe is going on but if someone knows different please let me know
    when she went to stand she couldnt so she dragged herself to her am food, I encouraged her to stand while I was lifting the back she got the front up no problem, I let her lean against me for about 20 seconds then stepped back praying she could hold her own she did accually stretched wagging her tail and went to the morning bathroom. no staggering just walked off like nothing happened

    so anyways I am still waiting and waiting

    you havent seen any contractions yet? If you have, you could always insert just 1 finger to see if something was there... that is , of course, assuming that she looks tired out from being in labour? DONT do it if she's not in labour, obviously. I had with Whiss that when I inserted 1 finger you could feel the hoofs there but no nose. Which is why she was just sitting there for hours without doing anything.

    She looks from the pictures fairly ready to go! If you think she hasnt got enough energy you could dissolve molasses in warm water and let her drink it - that will help her. You may want to give her Vit B too.

    Anyway... see how it goes

    *hopes for babies*

    sounds like putting her head against the wall she is starting to contract for you. Hope there are babies for you by now!!
