    Okay so here's the picture progression.

    From November 2009, when she was open:

    February 18th 2010, at around 55-60? days bred:

    Do you think pregnant? It looked like a for sure thing but now I'm not so sure. Her teats are poking out but no real udder growth just yet, but she has time for that. Due date of May 25th I believe.

    I can't feel any kids, which again doesn't mean much of course. She's doing a right job hiding them if she's pregnant.

    If she isn't, this would be twice she's been exposed and didn't take, and I'll have to ring her precious little neck. She'd be a second freshener.

    Weird.... the February pics... I would have said definitely bred... but the most recent she looks open, yet she does look to have some udder. Did her udder go all the way back to normal after her first freshening or does she always hang a little like that?

    She went all the way back to normal. Dang goat is driving me crazy..she gets one more chance (only cause she's a pet) before I have to consider finding her a pet home

    I have one of these frustrating does as well...she has even had the shot to get her back into cycling normally. What do do? I am attached and want to give her every chance...but it is getting old. The doe I bought from the same farm bred the first time...she wasn't a first freshener though!

    She's not at under the month mark and has no udder and I cannot feel kids so...not pregnant.

    She gets another shot with the new buck Roadhouse in July before I seriously consider finding her a new home.
