    Good Afternoon, folks!

    Can you tell if this goat is settled? We just got her last week and she's still a bit skittish, so, I got these picture on the run.

    Thank you for looking!

    I think not -- but if it was a recent breeding it would be hard to tell now

    2 months past breeding I usualy can tell if a doe is pregnant by their "pooch" there are distinctive changes that happen. I prefer to have a before breeding picture to compare to if the doe is not mine.

    I can tell with 95% accuracy with my own girls at 3-5 weeks post breeding. I even have a doe out there who was bred last week but I am 70% sure she is bred due to her pooch.

    I shot just before breeding would be just fine. Then you can request a Pooch test by anyone on here around 2 months post breeding. We should be able to help you out.

    Looks like a Nubian's backside to me. :p I can't guess. I never know until they either go in heat again or get an udder.
