    it should fill more as she is in labor

    thats probably why all your goats were crying this morning if she is in labor ;)

    Awww how awesome P7!!!! When I read your post before going out to take care of my goaties I was thinking 'something has to be up with them' I've watched some of the videos on youtube, and in some you can hear the other goats yelling and going crazy! At least your herd will notify you if anything is going on! If something is up here, everyone runs to the gate yelling like an alarm LOL

    She is definitely huge in those pics! I love her expression in the first one as she's looking back at you!, and then the next one - she's got her ears in such a manner as if to say 'can a girl have some privacy here?' LOL

    So glad she has gone into labor! I can't wait to hear all about it and see some pics!!!

    So far one baby girl born at 10:05 with white body and red head and...blue eyes! She seems like contractions are starting up again and doesn't look empty, so hopefully at least two in there!!! The girl came out in perfect presentation and within a couple minutes, and she's pretty big. Will weigh later! Already up and nursing Karma. :leap:
    And her udder did fill in more right after baby was born. Yes, that's why they were all crying this morning!

    kids eyes look blue when born but change to brown usually. Blue eyes are a fault in the boer breed. but a mix breed could have them yes.

    congrats on the new girl, I assume there will be more ;)

    Re: Karma's kidded a doe!

    I was just wondering if they were born blue and turned brown! Karma passed the afterbirth at 11:20, so I'm assuming she's done! Baby weighs 8 lbs according to our digital home scale, not sure how accurate that is. I'm watching Karma and baby on the monitor now to let them rest, but once the placenta is delivered that's it, right?
    Going to shrink a picture of baby and post it. The wait and drama is finally over, and now I know Karma's sure sign of impending labor: The war cry of the herd. :p

    Re: Karma's kidded a doe!

    I was thinking the same thing, Stacey. Just one? I kept waiting and waiting. I guess I went a little overboard trying to fatten her up since she was a stick two months ago when she came home. Too many midnight bags of fritos for her!
    And Hoosier, that war cry woke me up out of a dead sleep. I thought somebody was dying! Thankfully it was something pleasant and I can quit listening to my horses pass gas all night. :roll:
    And she is resting comfortably, no distress and ate some grain. She and baby both appear to be enjoying getting to know each other after the wait. She's an excellent mother, even lifting her leg to allow the doeling to nurse and fussing over her.

    Today my girl got a great big udder, to where I can truly see what filled and strutted means. Oh yeah, she could definitely pass for dairy! Guess I have to have the odd doe who really fills in after she delivers. She thinks she's slick. Next year I have her number! :p

    She probably will, and be quiet as a mouse when she starts labor. But next year, I will know when she is due and save us both a lot of grief. :p Hey Hoosier, I just noticed we both even joined the same day!

    Wow I hadn't noticed that! Very cool! I absolutely LOVE this forum and everyone here, such a great group of people! :thumbup: I know I would be soooo lost, and out of my mind! Just look at all the posts I've started with 'this issue' and 'that issue'!
