    I posted a question about a month ago about the little buck I had bought who died.. and never acted bucky.

    Well, I had decided (pretty much) that the goat wasn't bred, and no babies, although I kept asking around LOL.

    We have MUCUS PLUG this morning!! So.. he got it done after all, somehow LOL. :cool:

    Fingers crossed for happy, healthy little AlpineX x Nigie babies!!

    Let ya know when babies are here! :stars:

    Udder is pathetic, although feeling like it's thinking about filling :?

    Have bottles, colostrum, ready to go just in case, although hopefully that won't be necessary.

    Thanks guys!

    Well.. thought it was just the plug but goob is still there tonight (first noticed at 9:30) so not so sure it was just the plug, since I sort of thought that would be gone/rubbed off by now.

    1/10 is her last due date (although last year went on day 153). No dates after that until May.

    Buck is tongue flapping at her. Thought he went out of rut 2 weeks ago LOL.

    She's very nervous, and eating hay like she's wicked mad. Think I heard her muttering under her breath :slapfloor:

    Hourly baby watch. Not sure if it'll be tonight, but last year she snuck her kidding past me, so I'm taking no chances with temps down to 19 out there.

    Not much to report...

    Yucky white snotting discharge stuck to her tail around 3am in a big gob.

    Udder a bit bigger. Seems like it's gearing up to grow- some loose skin there just waiting. Ligs feel low (like they are part of her pin bones). The last few days she's been all over me for pettings but tonight she is getting really antsy about having her belly/near her tail touched. I'm not sure if she's slept in the last few days (or stopped eating either LOL), poor girl.

    And tonight she started licking the wall :scratch:

    Well, I thought last night we were getting close.

    She kept showing her teeth all day, just a little bit. The wall licking. Clear discharge all day. Udder seems a bit bigger.

    Hourly bed checks and visits and I could tell something was going on. She was laying down but every few minutes she'd shift her back leg, just a tiny bit.

    And today.. no drip. Vulva is a bit less red. :GAAH: It's still poochy (a month ago it was flat except for her lips) and she still seems like her udder is there, so I don't think she's faking me out although.. who knows LOL.

    when did you get your other buck? is there a chance she was bred by him? Because that udder is not the right size for a doe kidding any moment/day now. But I have seen goats fill up just before kidding :shrug:
