    Fun, fun-I don't know why, but as I said before, I really like Butternut. Of course, it will be fun watching both progress along in their pregnancies. :wink:

    Melody kidded tonight at about 8:30pm,
    1 buck & 1 Doe, both seem to be fine, *by torchlight* have a better examination tomorrow lol
    so all is well,
    and as usual Snow my maremma thought that the doe would hurt them, & that she had to protect them from mama...............? silly dog lol, so had to separate them,

    Awww congrats! Our does first possible due date is today too! But we don't have an exact date bred, just first possible date..haha...
    Can't wait to hear about it and see some pics!

    BTW, if it helps, I don't have electric in our mini barn, so either I have to run an extention cord out with a utility light <the kind that has the clip so you can clip it on to something>, or....a flashlight...LOL

    :whatgoat:
    Hi, I have nigerian goats, that are about 152 pregnant. I am wondering when I should start to get worried? All seem happy, just seem a little awkward, so they lay down more. Everyone is eating alfalfa freely (no grain) None seem hungry. I have not seen definate strings just hints of mucus. Udders are filling, but not bulging like I see in pictures posted on the web. How long can they go before It is a problem. (can all the goats be having problems?) :ponder:
