I have a doe who does that, the first kids we played the "disappearing/reappearing ligament" game for few WEEKS. the second time she taunted me for a few days.
I'm hoping it will only be a few days. I don't think she can go much longer if she gets any bigger she will bust:)

How sweet of you to rescue them. :)

They are getting closer, the udder on the one, needs to fill a bit more and the kids are still up on the sides.

Does like to pick there own time to kid and keep us on our toes. ;)

Any discharge?
The pics are of the same goat. Her sister already had her twins last week.:). And also I was wondering if its going to cause her kids any trouble with her nipples hanging so low they are only about 3 inches from dragging the ground? One is worse than the other.

It may take the kids a little bit to get used to it but the kids on my low doe learn really fast to lay down to nurse, lol. They are usually stubbourn about it the first day or two and I have to fold their legs under them and help them find the teat. But within the first few days they have figured out their breakfast bar is low low low. lol.

She finally has a little stringy discharge. I've been feeling her belly . It feels like the babies are having a boxing match in there :) I'm going to keep checking on her through the night. Hope to have babies soon :)

Yay! She did it! She just had triplets:) 2 does and a buck:)
YAY! Are they nursing ok? I got a picture of my kids nursing my low doe like I mentioned before, it's funny. She actually isn't as low this freshening as she was last time.

They were having trouble at first so I've been helping them but they are starting to figure it out :)
