    As usual my goat Helga has been teasing me. Her ligaments are just about gone, her tummy is just about dropped and she has a little discharge, she's been licking me and she just looks ready to kid! She's looked ready to kid for three days! I do believe she is on day 149.
    gaaaa I'm gonna start ripping my hair out.

    Well- how 'bout helping me come up with some baby goat names to pass the time? I like the Scandanavianish names... so far I have a Helga, Lena, Olga, Gertrude, Ivan and the papa of this springs kids was Thor (RIP).
    The crazier the names the better! :greengrin:

    How about "Igor". Yep, I can say I know what you are going through. I keep hoping Scrumptious kids very soon-otherwise she'll be having Saanen cross babies-and I want LaMancha babies.Thankfully I know for sure that Kadisha is bred to the LaMancha buck so I may have atleast one LaMancha kid born-it'll probably be a buck-being my luck.

    Is she still holding out on you? Hang in there. :hair: She is waiting for you to not be watching. Here are a few female (think doe) names and the meaning:
    Ada: Sweet or pleasant
    Arabella: Eagle heroine.
    Giselle: Pledge.
    Greta: Pearl.
    Matilda: Strength in battle.

    Great pictures. Baby goats are so cute. Congrats :girl: :girl: . I told you they like to wait until you are not watching that is one way they mess with our heads. Be careful if you turn your back on Helga. She is waiting and watching for that moment you are not paying attention. :lol: Suellen

    Hmmm... I think Helga is jealous of all the attention going to Olga and the babies. She keeps giving me annoyed looks. I told her if she kids she'll get all the attention she wants.
    Goats never listen though...
