Is it just me, or does anyone else think this scenario is common this year?
Yes, simply because I’ve had 3 do this and it’s never happened before!
Kass update us when you confirm whether she is pregnant. I think my doe that had what I thought was a heat....is pregnant. I am going out to ultrasound her again today. tami
madhouse and cbpitts: I agree. It does seem really strange to me!
Good luck today, I hope you come back with positive results!
As for my doe, I am not excluding the possibility that she is pregnant after all, but most likely she is not. I am going to have a blood test done next month.
Here was the ultrasounds from today. I am pretty sure Rey is pregnant. She is 37 days today I think. Rosie is just 30 days and FAT so it is tough to get a good ultrasound on her. I may pull blood on them too just to make sure if they are pregnant or not. But thought I would post the ultrasounds here.
I had a ewe lamb a nice single then 21 days later give birth to another lamb.
It's absolutely possible. In wild goat herds the favorite does of the buck will continue coming into heat or at least acting like it to prevent the too young does from being bred.
They will make sure to take up the buck's attention not letting him near the young ones lol.
Wellll I have bad news!
Both girls blood tests were negative! So no false heats. And back to the bucks they go. Ugh July babies!!
Sorry to hear that .
I am having my doe blood tested this week. I expect her to be negative as well, but want to be sure, since I am currently still milking her.
We are taking her to get ultrasounded on Wednesday. Ill let you know!
Update on the ultrasound:
So we bred her, then 3 weeks later she went into heat for a few hours. Then she missed this past heat.
We ultrasounded her yesterday and she is pregnant! 2 maybe 3 babies. Ill add some pictures.
@Kass that is so exciting! Congratulations!!
