Okay, so here is a FF three-year old doe. Yes, I know, shouldn't have bought a doe that's not proven and three-years-old. She's actually my cousins' doe, she has blue eyes, and okay conformation, she was only $75 - supposedly registered but owner never sent me her papers. :sigh:
That was besides the point. . . . first possible due date is end of September. What do you think? I was thinking she'd have more of an udder going, but her teats are a little longer and her pooch looks a little longer. I don't know. Opinions are welcome! :)

Sorry for the strange pics. She has a very spotted bum, so hopefully you can see a little! :wink:

Teats look a bit small and to me she doesn't look ready for a Sep kidding. Could surprise you of course.

And by the way, I've been there and done that. Had does who were infertile and never settled. Mine were always obese and impossible to really reduce weight on.

Yeah, I don't think September kids, it could be possible though. I've had does that balloon the month before, just get huge. I was surprised when the kids come though cause I wasn't expecting it! Who is she bred to?

I just let her live with our buck (Royal Blue, he was the only buck we had at the time). He never chases the does around unless they want him to. . . . she is not so nice to my other pregnant does, but nice to Royal. So, her first due date could be end of September. She could be due later on though. I don't know, never saw her actually get bred, unfortunately. I usually am able to see them get bred but this time I didn't see anything.

We'll probably just end up selling her as a possibly bred doe. I only want to stick w/ registered Nigerians.

Man, that stinks. Oh well! I think she just MIGHT be bred. I don't like her too much so I'm all for finding her a good home, if my cousin wants to. She's a really sweet & friendly doe, loves people. We'll see what happens. Thanks for your thoughts!

No human pregnancy tests won't work. Human tests check for increased levels of progesterone I believe and goats have a different hormone that increases when they're pregnant so it won't work. Would just be too wonderful wouldn't it! I wish they'd make one, they'd have a huge market of people willing to buy them. Me included!!!

:slapfloor: you girls are just cracking me up today for some reason. I can see us all running around with a pee stick waiting to be there at the right time! Ha Ha I was in the pasture following the girls around trying to get cha cha pics, Hubby said "the neighbors are going to talk"!
