    My gut tells me this little girl is pretty darn pregnant, but Im still kind of new to this. I hope she is. I fell in love with her at the auction. I wanted ehr already by that cute face. But she was shoved in with a ton of other goats. When I happened to catch her body I noticed her huge belly, then the hug udder, then hmm even her personal area is swollen. Pregnant? Any guess how far along? And shes a short little girl. Seems young her knees arent warn barely at all. But Im thinking she might be a mini la mancha.



    Pregnant? How far you think?


    And this guy came home with us too. Hes really skinny but for $12.50 hubby didnt wanna leave him. He is a little buck. I think to old to band.

    She looks like a minimancha to me. :) Those ears are interesting. I'd say she has 3 weeks left or less.

    Congrats on your new girl!

    For your boy, if you can get the band around them, then I don't think he's too old. lol

    Yep...she's preggy, and I agree with Ashley, not very long to wait to see her kids. And she does look like a young mini manch with those elf ears, very pretty colored too.

    As far as the buck, Going by horn growth, he is at minimum 8 weeks old but not more than 3 1/2 to 4 months. Band him.

    Thank you both for confirming what I thought. Score when you like the look of a doe then find out shes pregnant. LOL Now the fun is seeing what she was bred to. Hopefully a la mancha or mini. Lets hope she doesnt have a boer baby, not that I mind boers but she seems so young and little to be pregnant. But at least shes in good health. Any way to have more of a guess how old she is?

    I love her coloring. Thats what drew me to her first :)

    That was my concern. I guess we posted at the same time. I was asking about aging for that reason lol.

    I have assisted in kidding before, and Im a stay at home mom. So Im just gonna keep a very close eye on her, but Id appreciate the article :)

    Hmm according to the article Id say shes around 2 yrs old. She has four large teeth, four small teeth. Good shes at least older then I was guessing at least.

    She's cool looking. I have 1 lamancha and 3 pygmys. . . but no minimanchas. . . My little pygmy buck won't be ready to breed for quite a while though. . .

    Very nice looking goats. Bet they're glad to find a good home. :leap: Just a thought, you may want to do blood tests for CL & CAE and get them up to date on their CDTs, since they came from the auction.
