    I have 4 girls that will be kidding soon, 1 probably in the next day or so. What exactly are the ligaments ya'll talk about and the tail head. These will be my first kidding. All help and info is appreciated.

    Thanks Leslie

    Not stupid at all! Not many know where to find the ligs.
    Stacey has a great video on her site showing how to find them, but heres my version.

    On either side of the tailbone you can feel pencil like "tendons"....they do feel the same as a pencil would. They go into a triangle with the top being the tail "head" and they run a bit wider towards the does "but bones" The closer she is to delivery the deeper they get until they are finally gone and her whole tail area feels mushy.

    Not a stupid question AT ALL.

    It took me awhile to get this, but now that I do...It has been such a BIG help. If you can figure this out, you will just be amazed at how well it works. It's really not that hard to get down, once you get a hang of it.

    Here's a really good link that shows how to check ligs and where they are etc. http://fiascofarm.com/goats/prenatalcare.html
