    WOW! Time went by so fast!

    My first ever goat, Kookie, is due (at the earliest) July 3rd! This is her second kidding. I am thinking she will have a single. Maybe twins? She isn't big...if she wouldn't have her udder coming in I would've thought she wasn't bred at all.

    I'm curious as to what she'll have. Last time she had a single doe so... :shrug: I don't really care what she has, as long as they're healthy. Plus, I don't plan on retaining any. But :boy: :girl: would be nice...

    I'll have to get some belly and udder pics tomorrow.

    After my last kiddings I am so nervous!! :worried:

    She could have 2 in there! Pygmies are so wide and deep to begin with it's hard to tell how many they'll hide.

    I used to measure my beloved late Dolly's belly...her biggest girth was at 53 inches and she gave me triplets with that measurement twice...when she twinned she was 3 inches smaller :wink:

    Re: Kookie - Day 124!

    I'll say! You should have seen my girls this spring that had triplets! They were huge!
    Kookie's kidded once before with a single doe. :)
    Twins'd be nice but as long as she kids easy and the baby(s) are OK, that's all that matters! :)

    Any name suggestions?

    21 days... :hair: :hair:

    Thanks Toth! :greengrin:

    Any other guesses?

    Poor girl was SO hot today! It was 90 today, and that was in the shade! :shocked: No babies past May next year! I really hope she kids on a cool day. Bad idea having July babies! :doh:

    9 days... :wink:

    liz..that's a pretty neat idea....measuring girth to predict kids..but each doe would be different

    Re: Kookie -- soon? Pics added

    She's getting closer! :) Her udder has really filled, even more than last year. Her ligs are pretty soft as well. And she's been quiet lately...which is so not Kookie.

    But no nesting and no discharge, yet.

    It would be nice if she had 2 so I could sell them to the same home.

    Hopefully I'll be able to get some new pictures, before she kids. :hair: :hair:

    She was restless yesterday and today. She had a mild discharge yesterday and is starting to get swollen. :leap: She ate her grain but didn't drink much water or eat much hay. And ligs have been really really soft!

    :hair:

    Hopefully she kids BEFORE my pre-fair judging Thursday. I'm hoping.... :GAAH:

    Re: Kookie - Kidding Soon?! pics from 7-3 added

    By the looks of that pretty pink teat sticking out.....she won't be long. I noticed with my pygmy Dolly, when she was ready her teats would go pink and would strut forward...Kookie's is doing that now, and that teat is filled, I think it'll be later tonight or tomorrow.

    She looks alot like a doeling my Tilly had 2 1/2 years ago! Right down to the belt.
