    Hi all. Sorry to post again but I took a couple more recent pics of Sabrina. I am anxious to see if anyone here thinks she is preg or not. She is supposed to be due mid February. Thanks for looking and commenting. I can zoom the pics in if needed.

    I'm sooooo bad at pooch checks! :ROFL: So can't help you there....but have you noticed her coming back into heat? She'd have come back in 2x by now if she is due in Feb. :chin:

    I have only had her for a month and I don't know her very well. She is young and has never kidded before. I have noticed her and the other two girls (they are 5 months old) acting bucky and all that stuff so I am really not sure. I wasn't sure if it was a heat or a dominance thing. And there is no buck around to test them......

    I'm almost positive on her....she does have a soft look to her pooch, also being a FF....And due in 2 1/2 months, you should notice udder development starting in another week or so, my FF is due 2/10 and I can feel some udder growth starting.

    Thanks liz. I haven't noticed any udder development yet but she is soooooooo untouchable. And hairy there so can't really see. I had fun just getting the pics cause everytime I got behind her she would turn the other way. I am making a milkstand today to start training her to stand on it because she doesn't like to be touched. Once I get her on it, I can do a more thorough job. I think her teats are getting longer, though??? Do they do that???? But could be wishful thinking...

    Yes, you will notice her teats before you see udder. Getting the milkstand done will really help with teaching her milking manners...and most does at this point in pregnancy are touch-me-nots...Each of my girls are just a week apart in pregnancy and 2 of them have been milked, and they are also not liking the belly/udder touching.
