I have been around goats for almost 8 years now, and I have learned a ton, and seen a lot. My goats are quite a mix of breeds, such as Saanan, Boer, Nubian, Alpine, and possibly others that I don’t know about. I love to hear about experiences people have had with goats, and I love learning even more things about them.

Hello Goathiker: since my last communication 22 days ago - Ellie's belly and udder have expanded as in the pictures I posted to the other post. We have been doing a lot of reading and really want to be prepared in the event she is going to kid. And either she is just getting really fat from too much food or she is preggo. Thoughts?

I just joined the blog called The Goat Spot and searched up Maritime and came across your name. Do you sell goats?

So the reason I join was I have a 8-9 month old Pygmy Female who is pregnant. We didn't know when we bout her we just though she was bloated. She is now bagged up and she is due any day now. Im 5'7 and shes stands half way to my knee. She is doing good not. But im worried about when she gives birth. The father could ether be a Pygmy or a Fanting. Any advice?

If I offer to send you a bander and bands: 1) Would you be offended? and 2) Would this even be possible?
You stated the equipment was not available to you.
I could either order one to be sent direct or I can send one from the house.
I band mine, and while it has ocassional issues, 98% of mine go just fine. A pack of bands is 100 bands, lasts me awhile!

And I do not want anything in return, ever!

Hi Goathiker - Here is a picture of Ellie's udder with teats and her backside. Do you think she could possibly be pregnant? We found her (or she found us) about 4 weeks ago.

I’ve just bought a pygmy goat in kid, sides are very sunken in and udder is huge. Does anyone have any idea of when she might kid? I got told she could be any time however might still be a month away? I’d appreciate any help!
