    My friend, who is boarding my goats, just got two lovely Nubians. One SEEMS to be building an udder. She wanted me to take a picture and ask you guys what you thought.

    The doe could have been exposed to a buck at the previous home, she has also freshened before.

    I think no, despite the udder. I am holding her tail up a little bit.

    I'm going to say yes, her backend looks all fleshy....the udder looks like it is filling, nothing like a "deflated" dried out doe's. About how long ago would she have been exposed to the buck?

    I'm not sure really. Leah (my friend) just got the two new does a few days ago. The does could have been exposed to the previous owner's bucks at any time really, through the fence or just from an escape.

    The udder feels like it's filling, it doesn't have the deflated feel to it my girls have at the moment, being dried off and open.
     
  6. I know I say this a lot but I am just concerned. Looks like she could be pale back there so check the eyes. She may need a worming. Just to be safe. I would say she is bagging up some so it is possible, then again she is a dairy goat. :roll: Sorry used to the meat breeds. LOL Keep us posted on the progress.

    The flash on my crummy camera made her a lot lighter looking than she is. However, my friend does do a natural deworming on all her does, so if there is an issue, it will be taken care of. Thanks for the heads up though, you never know! :)

    I'm not much of an expert, but I'm going to say yes. She looks a little wrinkly and fleshy, not to mention the udder...

    How far along would she be? Her udder is telling me yes, but her belly and back end are telling me no.
