Im new to goats and I just purchased 20 head of Boer goat a few weeks backs. A few days after I brought them to their new home They slowly began to get larger and larger. their left side is larger than the right and I can't tell if the vulvas are swollen. The trick is that some of them are still nursing and one is a nursing a bake just 3 1/2 weeks old. I will send photos if anyone out there can share information! Really need it so I Know if I need to build a kidding pen before I leave this weekend.

It's good the left side is larger than the right, means they're eating and ruminating properly. A few weeks isn't long enough time to notice a huge difference in "baby belly" on the right side. How do the udders look? Ligaments? Vulvas? We need all the "Girly" information to give a more accurate guess.

When you take the pics, take them from behind with the tail up, naturally. Try to get pretty close, but, include the udder. Also, I like a pic from above, with both the right and left side visible.

If you think "wow, my neighbors are going to talk", then yes, that is the right shot. lol.

Does sometimes nurse kids up to a year old, depending on when a buck is introduced. They can still be pregnant while nursing.
