That's odd, is she really loose in the rear end? Have you felt her ligs before she was bred/due? When would her due date be? If you've never felt for her ligs before then her's might just be hard to find. I have a doe that is REALLY hard to feel any ligs anytime.

I dnot know what you are asking. if she usually has prominant ligs when open then she is obviously getting ready to kid in the next couple weeks or even hours depending on when bred.

hmm interesting. When are you checking = because sometimes after they pee their legs feel looser (but I only know that to be the case with bred does.

Is she a deep doe?

she isn't particularly deep, the usbga judge who judged her said she would be when she matured. I do notice that this doe urinates ALOT, like every 15 or 20 minuetes, she drinks ALOT too, she's probably too hot! it got up to 70 degrees today!, ugg im melting. thanks stacey, happey b-day.

but i think im done waiting for her to kid, she can go back to the pasture, along with goat head. i guess they wont have kids this year, but theyll have 'em next year! thanks again

i had a yearling FF do it six weeks before she kidded this year, her tail bone was all arched up and everything, there were huge hollow spaces on either side Had a goat friend over and she though she was due in a few days, said nope she still has a little over a month to go. Trill actually kidded four days late. Kids were fine and healthy.
