    Baby was bred oct 25 shes a ff she started loosing her ligs in jan now I cant find them at all shes is making a nice little bag.On jan 23 her vulva was swollen and really red but it went down. I was afraid she was going to abort but she hasnt How common is it that they loose there ligs early?Shes not to big Im guessing she will have a single like her mom did.Shes 47 days away from kidding.

    :GAAH: I had one like that last year...she should be fine. Are you sure on the date? Could she have an earlier date? It's part of the "Does Code"...have fun!

    Stacey Ive been beating my head against the wall thinking maybe their there and I'm just not finding them Ive even watched your video several times to try to be sure.I'm praying she wasn't bred earlier if she had been why would she stand for the buck?and show signs of a raging heat when I took her to the buck? I know her mom didn't show any good signs of kidding she just walked across the pasture and spit baby out while walking...

    oh my thats quite a interesting way to kid! :shocked:


    as to her standing for the buck -- it doesnt happen often but they sometimes do even when pregnant.

    I wish I could give you more concrete for what is going on but I do rememeber that RunAround's doe Dawn last year lost her ligs a month I do believe it was before kidding. So it can happen --- but of course she is further then a month from kidding :shrug:


    And no your doe is not the only one to not read the Kidding Manuel :ROFL:

    sounds very strange. But I guess it is a waiting game. :sigh:

    I would watch her close, but don't sweat it yet. As Stacey was saying, Dawn pretty much lost her ligs a month before kidding. Her udder filled up about halfway and she had discharge. But she waited until that second due date. Crazy goat.

    I'm having the same problem, when I originally saw this I was glad to see I wasn't the only one. I was thinking my doe was due Mar. 6, so I thought maybe we'd be ok. But I was looking yesterday and realized I had her mixed up with another one and she's not due til April 1st.

    I've considered she may have been bred early, but if she was it was most likely to the wrong buck (I have one that occationally manages to get where he don't belong), but I generally keep good records anytime someone is out of place, but I have nothing that would make it possible. I'll probably be gray headed by the time it's over, but I hope she holds off!

    If you don't think she was bred earlier, go with the original due date, she only has about 5 weeks to go so this being her firt time she's just getting things in gear early enough to have you bald. It's easier said than done, but try not to stress too much, until you see a "problem" this early, such as bloody discharge, she'll be fine :hug:

    I have a couple of them who are hard to predict, they mucous for a month, the ligs come and go, and it's just a matter of watching. I find do find that their udders firm up most of the time though. Daisy has a big udder, but her ligs come and go, and sometimes I think she has dropped then again - nothing. She might kid this week.Tia's ligs went but she dropped her stomach and her udder firmed. Aine our nubian who'se babies :girl: :boy: I have under the heat lamp didn't show any sign of dropping her stomach or ligs, but her udder tightened really full. Chocolate kidded a gigantic doe :girl: yesterday and her udder totally filled up huge the day before. So all I can say is keep checking the udder feel it, and follow your gut.

    Well looks like my Chaney was bred earlier then I thought, and looks like it was to the right buck to! I knew there was no way she'd make it til April, yesterday I told my mom I was officially on kid watch, guess I was right!
