So I have this pygmy doe that I am not for certain on her due date, but I really thought that it was mid August and she STILL has not delivered, although she is as big as a house and can feel the baby/ies. This is my favorite of my goaties and I am so nervous, as this was an accidental breeding (Gabriel got on the roof - broke through the fencing - jumped down 8 feet and bred everything in sight!) This girl had just given birth shortly before (maybe 1-2 months) and she had had a single buckling that passed away when he was 1 month old. Anyway, I have been watching her closely (she is lowest on the totem pole with only the kids below her) and so she is beat up on a bit and so I give her extra grain and pettings! Her ligaments are 1/2 way gone (been that way for about 2 weeks now) and sometimes they get real mushy and sometimes they are tight pencils. Her udder is rock hard, but she is showing no sign of delivering. The kid/s are moving in there so I know they are ok. I just want these little ones out to love and squeeze and play with! :ROFL: Then I have my other Registered doe, Joy, that is due anytime between now and the 19th. I had her with my buck from April 1 till April 19th when he was sold. If she delivers after that, it will be Joe Dirt's kids (kinda hoping for since Joe is no longer a buck). She is my girl that always gives trips or quads, mostly quads - and I already have a reservation for a bottle baby doeling!! Woo Hoo!. Any other doelings born I will be keeping! After all this, I will be done for the year. No more kiddings!
