    Me and DH bought a goat last month; and the lady we bought her from came by to "ring" our pigs. She happened to look at our goat and noticed she was not fat , like we thought, but ready to drop a baby. OMG! The blessed event has not happened yet, but it looks soon.

    Any advice or help would be appreciated because I know nothing about this!
