Our doe Pumpkin Seed looks like she is getting ready to have her kids! She was pen bred before we bought her with a guesstimate due around end of May.... Well we have been watching her closely and she is now in her maternity ward :)
She looks to have dropped, udder pretty full, has colostrum at end of her teats, and also has had amber discharge all day today. She pigged her grain, but won't touch the alfalfa. Heres to hoping for some babies soon!
I wanted to get new pictures tonight but forgot the camera :doh:

Here is Pumpkin from a few weeks ago....

Re: Pumpkin Seed

Welcome to GS! She is a beautiful doe! Sounds like she's close. I think the full moon last night brought all these girls into birth-mode. Good luck!

Re: Pumpkin Seed

Thank You! We think she is lovely too, but may be a bit biased :greengrin:

She is not a first freshener, I believe she has had many kiddings (not sure how many though).
We actually have one of her bucklings (Midori) who we bought with his sister (since sold) and then got the chance to buy her. :stars:

She is an Old Mountain Farm doe bred to a Rosasharn buck who was sold to a farm in North Carolina after Pumpkin was bred.
Yes- we are hoping for doelings, but healthy kids are all I am asking for! :greengrin:

Re: Pumpkin Seed

First of all. Welcome to the oat spot. Glad you are here.

Boy she must be in heaven in all that beautiful grass. I am still praying for rain so we can get some better looking pastures. I could only pray to have a place for the to eat that looks as good as your place.

Do you know how to feel for the ligaments? If so what do they feel like. I never use them as a 100% tell tell sign but as a good idea.

Here :pray: that you get beautiful does.
