    I bought this doe already bred. The lady I bought her from gave me 3 different breeding dates. First she said beginning of March, then she said beginning of February, and now she's saying beginning of April. She started forming her udder a month ago. I can still feel her ligaments although sometimes they feel softer and sometimes they feel normal.

    Is it possible she could still have a month to go?

    Hard to say. Her udder has a ways to go.

    She’s still a long ways out. Udder is nowhere near full. And not very big in the stomach. Call the lady you bought them from and see if this goat has been bread before. The udder and nipples don’t go back to normal size. If this doe has giving birth before, don’t count on this doe being prego.

    She will be a first freshener. The lady I got her from was a vet and did an ultrasound to confirm pregnancy the day I bought her. That was in the beginning of May. So I know for sure she is pregnant. She definitely carries her belly closer to her rather that bulging out on the sides.

    Well now that you say that, expect goats around the end of September I would think. It’s really hard to tell if you don’t know the date of... well you know

    @AdamsFamilyFarm - how is your doe coming along? Do you know what type of buck she was bred to? Hopefully you have a great healthy set of bouncing kids on the ground now? Or a VERY full udder!
