    Well I have really no idea when my goats were bred because I put them in with the buck and let them romance each other for a month. So I have to just go by the date I put them in the buck and kind of guess.
    Well Monica was bred on purpose to Cupid but Penny Lane, well I have no idea how she was bred because I never saw or should I say remember them a buck getting to her that early.
    So Monica has bagged up like triple the size from yesterday morning to today, and her ligs are almost totally gone. She had a little discharge like the plug, so I will have to keep her in her own stall with the new camera on her.
    I also have Penny Lane that is her mom that has a discharge and then I have Topaz that never had a bag last year and no sign what so ever of her getting ready to kid and she did, So I get to have those sleepless nights now. :leap: OH how I do love them and dislike them at the same time.

    I will post some pictures when I get back.

    Well I just got home and I went to check on everyone. Now we are not at all sure who will go first.
    I am going to lock us three tonight. We are in for a good snow storm, so I am sure something MIGHT happen. I still might have a bit to go. Who knows.

    Here are a few pictures. I know most of you are going to say that she has no bag, but beings they are not dairy goats they will not get them that look like the Dairy breeds. Ours are really pretty small compared to your goats.

    Here is Monica today. She is really a lot bigger then she looks,

    Here is her teat. Yesterday you could not see them at all. Matter of fact I felt her and she had NO bag to feel either, and now this.

    Here is her mom Penny Lane. She is the one that had the discharge. I do not know if you can see it there but it really is. It was a pretty big glob.

    Here they are together. I think they are telling each other how miserable they are.

    Here is another goat. I am not sure of her date either but she is getting a little bitty bag. This is Valentine. She is so big look at the way she has to put her back feet just so she can stand without falling over. She waddles when she walks. :ROFL:

    [​IMG].

    Here she is not impressed that I am taking a picture of her rear.

    Allison, Lori has Cashmere goats. Shorter staple then Angora, and we don't shear them, we comb the cashmere out with a big comb, in the early spring.

    Looking good Lori, your girls are farther along then mine. Mine aren't due till March. Good luck! :hi5:

    Yep just like Di said. Mine are Cashmere.

    Nope we have no babies yet. I am sure I am jumping the gun but they are getting bigger bags every day and the weather is so darn cold and a lot of snow. With those two factors I figure babies for sure. I guess i will get more :coffee2: and wait.

    This is why I hate it when I do not have a exact date. I never really do. Then if I have a doe here to be bred and I know the date they are bred, I see it and I call the owner. They do not mark the date down and they expect me to remember. I tell them that I will tell you and you have to write it down, I have my own does to try to take care of. :GAAH:

    Lori - Those girls are beautiful, I can't wait to see pictures of their kids.

    I'm sitting here wondering how you actually got such good pictures of your goats, apparently by yourself? Every time I go out to mine they mob me and all I have for pictures are noses in the camera lens! :ROFL: I tried getting backend pictures of several of mine... it was impossible as they kept turning around to come give me hugs. I finally had to have my daughter hold them and even then they kept trying to turn around to see what I was doing back there. Silly goats.

    I am also anxious to hear how you like your new camera after this...let me know if you think it was worth getting and installing.


    Waiting for your kids.... :girl: :girl: :girl:
