    Dotty is due this month. I'm thinking like a week. Maybe two weeks. She is restless and lays down much more than she used to. She is pulling her head way back to look up at the roof and is also doing mama talk. She is a FF and I am thinking a :kidred:. I know it is just one in there but I am hoping for a girl. She is the herd pet so it really doesn't matter to me either way. LOL Its just fun to be looking forward to babies again! Her udder has gotton twice as big in two weeks. It's now about two hands full. I think she lost the plug this morning. But not sure. Her ligs are definantly getting loose. Not quite all the way loose but almost!! Here are some pictures from a month ago. I will post new ones tomorrow. I will get an udder shot and one from above. She is also looking more sunken in to me. Anyways here she is! :p

    I can't believe how much longer that other doe has to go! Poor thing! Dotty looks close to me, but not quite there. I'm just learning though, so don't take my work for it! Handsome boy you have too!

    Quick update: Dotty is starting yesterday isolating herself. Her ligs are getting more and more loose. She is also more vocal than usual. We are going to have record temps tonight with a wind chill of 6-11 degrees. Watch her kid on the worst night of the year. Lol

    My doe waited until after midnight to kid the other night and we are in central KY, it was COLD. So I feel your pain! Heat Lamps and sweaters for the kiddos! Good Luck! :)

    She is still holding on to those kids! We have had very cold weather for the last 3 days. I am amazed she still hasn't had them. Her ligs are very loose but not quite there yet. :chin: Udder seems to get slightly bigger everyday. She still hasn't filled though.

    Ligs are completely gone this evening and a slightly bloodly discharge, Still no colostrum though :? ... She is looking back there and grinding her teeth. She didn't eat hay this morning and isn't interested in grain this evening either. I have a meeting at 7:30 - 9:15. I will check on her when I get home.
