    I was all prepared for my girls to be due in May, kept counting and yep thats what I got.

    Then

    I realized, they arent...

    THEY ARE DUE IN APRIL!!

    Makes me happier lol cause I get early babies! But wow I cant believe how dumb I was..

    So NONE of my girls have gone back into heat, but no one seems very fat right now, think they will get fatter soon?

    when I bought my girls, 2 of them had approx 1.5 - 2 months to go,
    they had 9 hours on the road, plus we had to stop overnight & they had to stay in the trailer
    so they would have had about 20 hours locked up in a trailer.....
    they all handled it fine :) (Saanen & Nubians)

    I am with Aimee, We got our girls at the end of April, and they kidded at the beginning of July. They cried the first few nights - only because they were locked up and wanted out...LOL Otherwise they would stand nearest to the back door and cry so I'd come out and visit with them and bring treats! They handled it really well. I am sure it'll be strange, but I'm sure they will be fine :)

    BTW, if it wasn't for the goat management program I have....I'd be lost in the fog, so to speak. So don't feel dumb!
