    I felt sooooo silly typing that title! LOL But that is what you call it right?

    I just brought Hopey home from staying a month with a buck. I think she looks pregnant already, but that is prolly just wishful thinking :D

    Anyhow, I followed her around trying to get a good pic of her backside, and this is all I could manage. My dd Kela got the best one. Sorry the pics are fuzzy, my regular camera died, so I had to use the phone.

    So what do ya think? She had twins last year, so I figure she got bred, but I am hoping she is already a month along at least!

    Oh shoot. Yes, I forgot about that part. I guess I will take more pics in a month!

    Thanks, I think she is a cutie pie :) She came runnin' right to us at first when she heard us outside to come and get her today :love: Although, she still made us chase her after that! LOL :ROFL:

    keep those pictures handy -- they will help with determining in a month or two if she is indeed pregnant. Comparrison pictures are so helpful! I stopped guessing on other peoples goats because I dotn know what they normally look like so it is not good to even try guessing

    Ok, If Hope took at the beginning of August it will have been 2 months now... The lady said she should have took before the 18th at least... :) Can you tell me if you can tell a difference? And point it out to me, so I can see too?

    Here is a couple weeks after breeding.
