I'm still not 100% sure if Tilly is pregnant, but I'm leaning towards she is and crossing my fingers!! This will be her second freshening. If she's pregnant her due date is September 21st!! She is on day 106 and is due in 39 more days! Last year when she was this far along, I able to feel her babies kicking. So far, I have not felt any definite kicking, but I think I felt a baby! I'll try to get some pictures of her soon and you guys let me know what you think!! I can't wait for babies to arrive!!

Thanks everyone!! 🥰

Here's some pictures as promised! I'm almost positive that I felt a kid moving today!! 🤗 It still wasn't definite kicking like last year though. Let's play a guessing game! Do you think she's pregnant? If so, how many? And number of doelings and bucklings?

Could you be wrong on the breeding date? If she is pregnant, it looks like she has at least 60 days left. I hope Tanya is right and she is hideing a single! We will all know soon! I hope she is pregnant! .

Nope. If Tilly is pregnant, her due date is on September 21st. We had our friend's buck for about a week while she was in heat, and the day I have marked on my calendar, I know I saw him breed her at least three times that day (he mounted, she hunched kinda thing). Honestly, since she's half Pygmy, she is a pretty deep doe and good at "hiding" kids. And she also seems to carry more down low than out to the sides (I realized I didn't get any side pics...sorry) Last year she wasn't really big so I was thinking just a single, but Tilly had other plans!! She popped out doe/buck twins that were 4lbs each!! Who knows though...goats are always full of surprises and always have different plans than us! But like you said, it won't be long before we know if she is or not!

Fingers crossed for you! I have a doe that is large but hides her babies well. I swore she wasn’t pregnant but this past spring had a huge single.
