    So Dorcas isn't due for a while yet but her ligs are already pretty soft and low. Is that normal? She only has a little bag and I am sure of her due date.

    That is pretty normal Ashley...since you know her due date I'd say she is just getting ready to take you on that wild ride with the does code of honor. She has a belly full of babies so everything is going to "relax" at this point.

    I do believe she isnt a ff so the loosening of the ligs early on isnt to uncommon. They will probably stay in that state for a little while before progressing.

    he he I just worry too much I guess. lol Since Dawn aborted on my b-day last year I get anxious about them doing that.

    She is a FF.

    I felt her kid/kids kicking up a storm today, so I am pretty sure they are fine.

    I do notice that sometimes my does get a little soft but they never loose their ligs until just before.
    They are just getting things ready.

    No they aren't gone, I just noticed she feels looser than usual, but maybe it's just her. I will try to get a picture of her tomorrow.

    She still has over a month to go and she is already starting to drive me nuts. :hair: :help:

    Thanks! I'm really excited about these kids!

    She is bred to Bambi and depending on how her udder looks I may keep a doe from her. :)
    These will be the first kids from Bambi.

    I felt the kid/kids today jumping around like crazy!
