Hello all I'm new to the forums. It is currently Spring here in Australia. I'm just wondering if maybe my female goat is pregnant? Bella is a 1 and a half year old Cashmere goat. I also bought another male goat just last October, he's a small goat, and he is now 1 year old and they have both been in the same paddock for this whole year along with the other sheep. Bella has an udder, fairly normal size, with only 2 teats, and her stomach is also bulging out a little bit to the sides. She also doesn't run much anymore, almost like her stomachs too heavy for her, she used to run when i called her over, but now she only half walks/trots over. Although the left side of her stomach looks larger than the right, but I'm not so sure... because sometimes the right side looks bigger too. She seems to turn her head to the side of her stomach a lot too, almost like she's smelling it. She HAS got a winter coat, so I'm not so sure if it's just her coat making her stomach look large. I'm keeping an eye on her at the moment, and she isn't bloated at all either and there are no signs of diarrhea. She never used to have an udder, but i only just noticed it the other day. My mother thinks she may be pregnant, seeming Bella has been in the same paddock with the male goat for the year and i guess they could have bred. But i just want to make sure if it's true or not, before i get all excited. Just a question, when exactly do female goats first develop an udder? Is it at a certain age? or only when they first get pregnant? Here are some pictures of her udder and stomach, so if it's possible, could someone please determine if her udder is starting to develop with milk and if her stomach is more than just her coat, Thanks!! Sorry the images are so large, had trouble resizing.
