This is My Manchi -my 4 year old Mini Mancha Doe who should be due this week. Vet came out today to ultrasound all my pregger girls and couldn't believe her babies were so well developed that we could actually see their lungs and heart on Ultrasound! Twins clear as a bell, one pretty big, one a little smaller and locked and loaded in the chute! lol. He told make sure she was confined to her birthing stall tonight because she was ready to go any minute. She's slowly filling her udder- So here she is, fresh fluffy bed- warm bucket of water- fresh alfalfa and her favorite topping on her Noble Goat Grain -a sprinkling of deer corn. Hoping she goes in next couple of days- vet seemed to think so- maybe tonight- full moon you know. She is bred to our nice Mini Nigerian Buck Rowdy so we can't wait to see if we get ears? no ears? .black and white like Manchi? , chamoisee? combination?..cant wait to see...so we are waiting waiting waiting...want a little mancha eared doe soooooooo bad! :kidblack::kidblack:

lol- I don't even think about those when I take pics anymore-
They are tennis balls! When my does are preggers they get grumpy and greedy with one another sometimes, and my girls are horned- so they all get tennis balls on their horns secured with decorative duck tape- they look pretty funny I guess- but it protects those little tummies and udders when they are getting close. Someone told me they thought my girls should pull Santa's sleigh this year because they looked so festive..:lol:

No they don't seem to have any problems with their tennis balls. But I make sure to use just the little tennis balls and only cover about 1/3 of the horn so their horns can still breathe. Oh and thank you for the comment about Rowdy! We think he is beautiful.

Oh and thank you for your EMR about Rowdy. We love him and he is a little older than that now and has a beautiful black shawl around his neck

I hate a/c too it gets quite annoying. If you don't mind I may steal your idea about the tennis balls! And he is a gorgeous buck! I have a Nigerian/pygmy cross that I'm going to breed with my girls next year and he's so adorable and a beautiful brown/blacking coat with a solid black line and grey ears. =) but your buck has a beautiful red color. And good luck!!! Totally stalking is thread now

You wont believe it!

yes you will....lol
THIS GOAT IS STILL PREGNANT!!!!
I am attaching new pics. Can still get baby kicks with pressure, she is eating hay like a horse, (literally) and does anyone out there have any guesses on how close this fat girl is??? She was ultrasounded with twins on my first post, and the vet (who was an extern) was like "Oh look how developed they are! they look so good! you can even see their little hearts and lungs! Take her home and put her in a birthing barn, she could go tonite! Yeah...right.... If she doesn't have these babies soon, I'm gonna turn her upside down and shake them out...she is completely normal- no streaming or anything today, has checked her urine the last couple of days with her curly up lip and she seemed content- appears completely healthy and terminally pregnant...like I said we did not know her date of breeding which is why we ultrasounded her. Im not great with ligs, so even though they feel gone to me...I just cant be sure. But her little belly is hanging so far down I feel like she needs a sling to hold it up when she is running around.:GAAH:
