    I have a FF doe who I expect will be kidding very, very soon (today I hope). I am just wondering if the size and shape of her udder right now is comperable to what it will be while she is in milk? I know her teats point out too much, but they look better now than they did a week ago. I really know nothing about how a really good udder looks, but hers is certainly more than I expected. Does her udder give an indication of production? Here is a picture I took this morning (I don't have a side view right now):

    nice capacity - it could get bigger before she kids though :thumb:

    as to her teats - a better medial would help with that. But over all it isnt to bad

    Adorable little guy, Congratulations :stars: :stars: :stars: :birthday:

    Why is everyone so worried about a little goat poop in the pictures. If I didn't see it I would be worried as goats don't potty train well. Anyone ever try to train a goat to use the toilet? Their aim is way off and besides they would rather drink the water anyway.

    LOL. I just don't want everyone to think I let my goats live in total filth... I apolgize for the state of my house with toys all over to people who have the same age kids as mine and who probably have houses in the same state as well. It's a compulsion.

    What a cutie pie.

    I LOVE to see stuff all around, that means you are so busy with your goats and kids that you do not have time. :ROFL:

    At least that is MY excuse :leap:
