Let my introduce Prairie Wood Carly, our next in line. Due date June 3. Pics taken May 6. I'll take more of her tommorrow for comparison.





Well, this is embarrassing, tomorrow I'll get a pic of the "whole goat". Sorry. And, soon I'll even get them clipped. But, it's still getting pretty cool at night and we've been in a "rainy" period. I thought May was supposed to be WARM rain?!

What do you think?

Re: Carly coming along nicely!

She's a Nigerian, and a ff. I told hubby, she can't possibly have trips the first time, can she? Oh dear! You should see her now, that pic was taken May 6, she's even bigger now. I'll get the new ones up today. I want her to have at least two though, I hope they'll be a little smaller, not so hard to birth. Please :pray: for an easy birth, and I'll be happy with at least one :girl: , no really, I will!

I had a ff have triplets this year and she did not look big enough to have triplets. So anythings possible. :D

Oh, I forgot Sweat Pea was a ff, I remember how surprised I was that she actually had quads, even though I thought she was BIG enough for 4!
Well I think you were probably the only one who was right on that - I never woudl have guessed

Re: Carly coming along nicely!

OK, I took these pics yesterday, May 17.





Funny, she's always got her head down, and her mouth full!

So, these pics were taken two weeks after the first ones. Can you see any difference? I did witness the breeding. Although, it was really fast. I left Fernando in with her for awhile but never saw her come back into heat. Considering her size, I can't imagine she'd go longer then her June 3 due date.

Re: Carly coming along nicely!

udder has filled in a bit. You will notice the biggest changes as she is more like a week to 5 days or less from kidding. Right now changes are always so slight.

Re: Carly coming along nicely!

So I was outside giving the girls some watermelon, when I noticed Carly is making a nest! So, I went in to look and give her a little treat. Her ligs are definately softer! Not totally gone, but really low. I'm going to go get her clipped and I'll take a new pic. I'm so excited! Please join me in :pray: for an uncomplicated delivery. And happy, healthy :girl: :girl: !

Re: Carly coming along nicely!

I had a tiny tiny unregistered Nigerian who ran with a buck for 3 years and never got pregnant. Then I got a new buck and bam - TRIPLETS!! We even ultrasounded her and only saw twins..... so yes FF can definately have trips! Just make sure you have some BoSe just in case!

Re: Carly coming along nicely!

Yes, I have BoSe, Vet made sure I had everything I could possibly need before she left for BRAZIL, man I wish she was here...but she won't be back till June 1. Carly will probably hold out till then though. I haven't actually needed the vet for any deliveries yet, but it's nice to know she's available if I need her. There is another vet available in a crisis, but you get emotionally attached to a vet...hhmmmm...I'm only going to think good thoughts! No more doom and gloom...hhmmmm. :GAAH:

Re: Carly coming along nicely!

Ok, I take terribly pictures, sorry. Anyway, I clipped her, partly anyway, so here she is:







Well, I'll try to get better ones tomorrow. Can you tell any difference in the new ones? Is she "posty" yet? I don't think so, yet anyway.

I would say that they have a bit longer to bake. It won't be long though.

Re: Carly coming along nicely!

No, she's a Reg. Nigerian Dwarf. She's one of the does we got from Prairie Wood Ranch in New Mexico. It's funny we have her littermate sister, who is gold and white. They have totally different colors!
