    She look really big and shes not really fat because shes really tight on her stomach. The owner we got her from said she SHOULD have kids ANY DAY in august of 09. we have been waiting a while. but shes huge!! could she have a stone baby like humans?? she doesn't really have udders. I belive shes a Nigierian. :scratch:

    From the sound of it, she's probably just really fat.

    well it certainly is far from August ;) :p

    I would say that she has loose stomach ligaments causign her to look round like that OR she was bred and is now due to kid fairly soon.

    Was there anytime she could have been exposed to a buck?

    Do you have a "pooch" or udder picture? I personally don't think she's bred. She could just be really wormy.

    i havent wormed her because i didn't think i should if she was pregnant. Shes really shy so its hard to get goo pictures of her. There is a buck that we keep in there with the other goats. I havent seperate him from them yet, because we were waiting for him to breed with some of the other does. I got the buck with her when i got them, but hes not the one who has soposively gotten her pregnant. Could he have tried to mate wit her when she was? Also these goats didn't have horns, which i really didn't like, because my other two goats do and they sorta bully those two because they don't have horns, and i have seen her hit in the stomach by one of the goats, so maybe she had a miscarrige, but shes still really big!! i just don't know what to do? I've been waiting for ever!! :?

    If her past due date was in August, it's a good possibility that she never settled from the last breeding, but that she is bred now by the buck you've had in with her. Some does have silent heats, so you might not have noticed that she was in heat, but she could have easily been bred by that buck that's in with her. Can you post pooch pics? Does she have any udder development?

    she does look pregnant -- does gestation is 145-150 days so she was obviously bred after you bought her. If she miscarred when "due any day" in August then youw ould have know it, it would have been like a normal kidding except kids would have been dead. This doesnt happen often.

    I expect that she is due with in a month or two at the very latest.

    Does she have an udder forming?

    yep - I would be milking her to make that uterus contract and expel the placenta

    Like Ashley said on the other thread - completely for now till you can get that placenta to come out completely. Then if you want to start working on drying her off you can.
