    So excited to finally be posting this. We are about 5 weeks from our first possible due dates. I don't have exact dates on everyone as we borrowed a buck for a month his dates are 4-29 to 5-30 our due dates are 9-21 to 10-27 with 145-150 days variable. I'll have to work on getting current pictures of my girls but I'll introduce you with the older pictures I have for now... we did selenium and cd&ts today along with health checked hoof trimming and weights. I don't have good prior weight estimates on a few as they have grown quite a bit from their last weights. I only have 6 girls right now and only 5 breed as one was a new purchase and only 3 months old when the buck was here, everyone else is older. The 3 boer does are all FF, or at least they will be for the ones that are pregnant.

    This is the buck we borrowed from our neighbor friends, he's a older guy and was very gentle with the girls, except for a few times we saw him mounting he just grazed with the girls like he had always lived here. This was his first day in the property, everyone was very interested.

    The first 2 girls are oberhasli, Kyanti about 8 years old and Mascato about 6. Both are retired dairy breeders and would have been separated and not exposed but my girls had other plans and separation would have resulted in fence damage (by my other does) and risk of the buck get out of the property. So unfortunately we weighed the risks and will keep close eyes on them as things get closer. Kyanti in the purple collar looking at the camara, we believe is possibly pregnant due to her current size and shape. She weighed 182 pounds today compared to 160 last year. Mascato in the green collar is a little harder to tell she has stayed smaller shape wise and we are leaning towards possibly not though she also had a weight gain 152 today compared to 125 last year. Again these are not current pictures just introductions. I don't have estimates on due date a side from the buck dates due to never seeing action or interest.

    Banshee is our first boer doe though not the oldest. She was born September 2018 and received in January 2029 as a show doe for the kids. She will be 2 years at delivery. We are certain she is pregnant, and she has been showing signs of udder development for about a month or more, just a small fist sized bag right now, and we where able to feel small kicks in her today. Her current weight was 176, but any prior weight would be inaccurate do to normal growing age. She is my fence jumper but can not currently jump due to her size. Estimate due 10-1 to 10-6

    Meridia was received in February 2019, estimated age 12-18 months at the time so about 2 1/2 to 3 years now. She was AI'd last year but miscarriaged early. We have known she was pregnant very early she is currently huge weighing 194 pounds and i would be surprised is not at least triplets she also currently has a small fist sized udder. Estimate due 9-30 to 10-5

    Flash is the last of my breed girls, also received February 2019 we where told she was about 6 months old but I don't believe she was more then 2-3. She is currently over 18 months though possibly not as close to 2. We are leaning more towards no for her as she has stayed small constantly but she still has time. Weighed in at 122 pounds today, if she is pregnant she is possibly the last due with interest in the last few days before the buck left, but no observed mounting. Estimate due 10-22 to 10-27.

    And just for fun don't worry this girl is not pregnant. This is Cuddles sorely after we first got her, she was 3 months old at time of purchase, received 5-18 and safely penned with a spare show wether standing behind her until the buck left (the wether has since left also).

    Kyanti: suspected pregnant. If she and Mascato are i suspect they will be the first 2 due, September 21 is the first date. Udder picture for Kyanti is for personal reference

    Meridia: also definitely pregnant, udder developing. I can't wait to see how her kids turn out. She's much bigger in person then she looks in the pictures. Poor girl started showing her first month. She's also my most nervous goat so getting her pictures where a little more difficult.

    Flash: is my most undecided, shape wise I'm leaning towards no, but her udder says maybe, we'llhave to wait and see. She would likely be my last due, October 18th or later. She is possibly only 12 weeks along today

    Got some good back angle belly pictures this morning. I think it's safe to say Kyanti is pregnant but Moscato and Flash still look pretty small. Any opinions appreciated. 4 weeks until deliveries could start. Waiting for the smoke to clear a little more so I can clean all the pens

    We would need closer pictures of their back end with tail up and lady parts showing.

    The oberhasli (Kyanti and Mascato) never have their tails up, i don't know if that's normal for the breed or not but they have always kept their tails down since I've had them. I've tried to look myself but neither give me much chance. They are great girls but they really don't like their tails touched for some reason. Flash isn't showing much change in that area right now, nothing that can't be guessed from her prior picture which I would say looks like a no. But she is also possibly the latest due and possibly only about 13 weeks right now. So for her things could just so be to early to say. I will see if I can get tails up on the oberhasli's in the next few days, they are possibly my first ones due so they may start bagging up here soon too.

    So here is a pic of Flash's lady bits, she's possibly about 13-14 weeks honestly at this point I think she's a hard nope...
    20200829_074236.jpg

    I did try to get pictures, even just get a peak at Kyanti and Mascato but that wasn't happening at all. And they are both easy to handle but they did not want their tails touched at all. Unfortunately I'll have to wait till Sunday when I get those 2 back up on the fitting stand Kyanti's hoofs, unfortunately I let them got to long this winter and it's been a long process trying to correct them.

    On another note, I know it's way too early for any to deliver. But I was able to get my hand on Banshee and her tail seemed very lose. I tried to find the ligaments, i have felt them on her prior to pregnancy, but i just couldn't find them. I figure I was just going a little crazy but her tail head did feel awful lose like I could seriouslygrab around it and pick it up, however she is still able to hold her tail all the way up. So I imagine maybe because she is a FF maybe her ligaments are just softening a little early and I just want finding them. She's eating this morning, and other wise seems fine. Unfortunately I couldn't get my hands on Flash or Meridia to compare, I did feel Cuddles but I don't think that a fair comparison as cuddles is only 6 months old. Unfortunately Flash and Meridia are my wildest 2, Flash has some show training but doesn't like to be handled, and Meridia is just wild and won't let anyone near her unless she wants love
