    This is Lacey the la mancha, shes a year and a half old, and FF obviously. Shes a smaller gal, and her huge belly really makes her look small. That and she will never get her head outta the camera. I had to have my daughter hold her to get an udder pic cause shes always got her head in everything, including my camera. We call her ET cause her face in the camera looks like an alien or something lol. I dont think I feel ligs on her, does her udder look full enough, does she look like shes gonna kid soon? I dont have a due date on her, cause they are pasture bred.

    it looks like its getting there but I still think she could fill more - a few more days, a week maybe. How is she behaving? Have the babies 'dropped'?

    I think she'll wait, besides her udder needing to fill more, her backside doesn't look "ready" either.

    Her behavor doesnt yell shes ready. Nor does the rest of her to me, but her ligs, they were there and there gone now. Maybe there just teasing me and theyll be back later. But at the moment they are very gone. Its weird its like I can feel her umm, personal area... its so squeeshy. Her udder has filled alot since yesterday and today thats for sure.

    Liz how long you guessing she has? Were moving in two weeks and Im hoping no one goes then... fine if they go before or after but dont really wanna have them going into labor while we move. Got 6 gonna go in the next month for sure... well see. They will probably all go in two weeks. LOL

    I dont go with ligs anymore - I've had too many come and go, does kid with ligs still there, and ligs disappear weeks before the birth LOL they always like to keep us guessing dont they? goats never do things by the book!

    Yep thats why I didnt yell yay kids I ran and got my camera and my daughter and we took pics cause i didnt think she was quite there yet, but thought id get a back up opinion from you all cause I still doubt myself. But yuo two backed up what I thought. A little bit more time.

    Yep, I agree, more time. When she is getting close her udder will REALLY fill...usually the rear udder seems to be the last part to fill and when she is close to giving birth she will get the "shelf" thing going on--you will know it when you see it!

    Watch her like a hawk...LOL. Usually when their udders really begin to fill out they've only got another day or two to go. It's hard to say without seeing pictures but she may go soon :)
