    I just got them in early September, haven't seen them breed though. IO gets 1 cup feed, hay and some pasture. She's look MIGHTY wide though on both sides! I'll get pictures up but she can't be showing already could she?!
    TIA!

    no she cant be showing that if bred in September - she is probably just full of hay and good food :)

    I have to agree with Stacey..... the goat probably has a hay belly....or a little bloated..... give some baking soda....

    My doe Patches literally turns into the goodyear blimp the week after she is bred and stays that way throughout her entire pregnancy...don't know why but you always know when she is bred. LOL

    My doe Magic is so easily bloated from being out in pasture that she looks like a blimp. When I first got her I would panic that she was bloated in a bad way but it's just how she is. Whenever people see her they always ask me if she is prego - LOL
