    PLEASE LET ME START BY APOLOGIZING FOR THE RIDICULOUS SIZE OF THE LATEST SET OF PHOTOS. I really don't think pooches are that attractive but the resizing on photobucket didn't work.

    We definitely have four, possibly five, pregnant girls here. I don't know when they are due but I think we're close.

    Paris and Barbara have been bagging up for a month and they both have a velvety, flat vulva. Paris has had some white mucous. Neither of these girls will let me pat them so I can't check their ligs. I'm thinking maybe only a week or two for these girls.

    Betty and Gemma have been bagging up for about two weeks and Betty has had some clear mucous and has very mushy ligs.

    (Why did this resize work??? :hair: )

    They are all FFs. Will their udders get much bigger first time around?

    Re: Serendipity Ridge - Gemma kidded!!

    We went down to the shed this morning and Gemma has kidded. :leap: :kidblue: (I think!)

    He is soooooooo cute. This our first kidding so I am over the moon.

    He is feeding and mum is a bit dazed but able to get up and down ok. The placenta has passed (am I right that that means there isn't any more kids?)

    Will post pics in announcements.

    cool, congrats! :)
    If she's passed the placenta she should be done, just keep an eye out

    you can tell if it's a male by looking at the anus, is there s an anus and nothing 'else' then he is male..

    Paris kidded this morning :leap:

    Another :kidblue:

    I know I should be sad that he's not a doe but he is just so cute I don't care. You'll see - will post pics in announcements. I love love love his colouring.

    Is there any way to tell at this early stage if a kid is polled or not?

    Re: Serendipity Ridge - Is Barbara posty?pics

    First of all - Betty kidded this afternoon. Check out pics in announcements.

    Now, Barbara has been my most pregnant looking doe all along (all FFs). She has been bagging up since 30th Sept. Her udder really started to develop 25th Oct but not tight. She is the only one of my goats that won't let me touch her so I can't feel for ligs. Yesterday she looked like she had dropped. Now, I think she's posty. What do you think? How long? Really hoping for twins as I think she looks bigger in person than in the pics.

    BTW the head you see behind her is not coming out of her! :)

    Yes, there are 2 ways to tell if a newborn kid is horned or polled.
    1: If you take your finger and move the skin over where the horn bud would be... if the skin will move the kid is polled.... a horned kids skin will not slide.

    2: A horned kid has a distinctive swirl over the horn bud where a polled kid does not....here is a wet picture of a polled kid and a wet picture of a horned kid so you can see the difference. :)

    Hope this helps!

    Congrats on all of your new babies!!!!!

    Re: Serendipity Ridge - Is Barbara posty?pics

    Just checked Barbara again. It might be wishful thinking but I'm pretty sure her udder looks fuller and maybe even tight. She also has a small amount of white mucous and she hasn't had any all during her pregnancy. Surely this is it :pray:
