    It’s getting warm, forage is available, and my goaties are eating and browsing all day long! Mine have always had really big rumens, they get fat on air, anybody else have some cute plump rumen photos to share?? :):)

    You want to see a BIG rumen? My boy Phantom has a ridiculous rumen. My mom jokes that he looks pregnant. The pictures don't do his glorious belly justice. :lolgoat:

    Awww!! Mine are not very “fat” you can feel their bone structure if you try, they are built quite nicely, but their rumens do make them look pregnant!!

    I wonder if inexperienced people asking for sire pictures will think Phantom is flawed for being so round. I certainly hope they believe me when I tell them that a big rumen is a good thing!

    People who don’t have goats are always asking if mine are pregnant. When I say no they’re always like “are you sure?” We love a good rumen.

    Likely an inexperienced person wouldn’t think to ask for sire pictures.
