Wow, I didn't know that. I'm surprised I missed that at some point. I'm glad she's able to get around well though. Java was like that. Only I don't really know what happened to her. She was one of the fastest goats in our herd though. She had a huge scar down her entire shoulder, leg turned in a little and the muscle and skin was tight over it. She never acted as though she was in any pain.

She definitely looks like twins, could be more depending on baby sizes. She looks great! Fuchsia's ligaments are still there. I sure hope she doesn't pass this date. I don't have another date for her but she just doesn't look ready yet.
Re: Ginger is on day 146 today! False alarm.........
By the sounds of it Ginger will beat Fuchsia. That girl hasn't changed at all.
I did find out a trick though. When a doe stands up and you're going to check her ligaments, wait a few minutes. Almost always they'll poop and if you're checking for ligs when they're about to have a bowel movement then they won't have ligaments. If you let them poop first then you'll really be able to tell for ligaments. I discovered that with nighttime checks. They'd always be laying down and when I'd go in their stall to check and they'd stand I'd get excited, no ligaments. Then double check again before going in and they'd have them. LOL
Re: Ginger is on day 148 today! LOW LIGAMENTS! And a big udder!
I've had many a first freshener act as though nothings up at all until they're pushing. Hera is a prime example of that. She acted like she was fine. Laying around sleeping till almost 11pm. Went to bed and she woke me at a quarter after 12 midnight pushing.
