    OK- here goes- this is very wierd and has me puzzled- I have this doe named Strawberry- She is a 3 year old and had kids weaned off of her in June of this year-I purchased her in July 12th and her milk is still dropped-It isn't full but it is the same as when I bought her, about halfway filled. I saw her get bred by Wildman July 30th-so she'd be due late Dec. does anyone know what in the world is going on??

    I have a doe that bags up really early also. Now it is not a full bag at all, just enough to tell me that she for sure is pregnant.

    Is there any way that she could of been bred before you got her? Did you see her get bred July 30th, did she hunch up after it was all over with?

    My girl that bagged up early just LOVED being a mom, so I think she was also anticipating having those babies.

    yes I saw her hunch up- but wildman breeds everything!!! She ran with a buck before,so I was told, but when I went to get her,there was no buck there-So I don't know for sure-Here is a more recent pic of her-about 3 weeks old though-her belly is getting bigger, but the milk is staying about the same.
