    yeah, i have a knowledgable person assigned there.

    today, she looks totally different, her tailhead and sides are sunk in, her vulva is VERY long (never seen one that long (i'm usually at school when they kid :roll: ) and get this......bloodshot eyes, weird right?

    i went ahead and separated her, just in case, and to make sure nobody beats up on her. and wanted to do a urinalysis for ketosis, i went out to the barn and got in the pen with the test strip, ready to pounce, i sit down and immediatly she pees. i know, i'm lucky, didnt have to wait more than 30 secs. and she came back negitive. --i lost a doe last year to ketosis so i decided i will test them all before kidding.

    I say she sounds close ...... no more then a couple days if that.

    Is she streaming amber mucus or just a little on her vuva?

    just a little here and there, about 2-3 inches hanging amber fluid whenever i go in there, she seems very content and quiet, i like her this way opposed to the normal 'rush her for the food!'


    i think im gonna go give her some selenium -vit e gel, and a tail trim so it doesnt get too messy when she does.

    went and check on her, her vuvla is really puffy- she can't flick her tail without hitting it :shrug: never seen it before....

    i sat down with her and she got up, water, pee, stretch, bit of hay, grooms legs, stretch, pees, and lays down......she repeated this 2 times while i was in there....she's gettin those babies into position...i think its going to be earlier than a month for sure.

    I want goat babies.

    happy turkey day! -or ham :)
