    Hello everyone! I am new to this site and I have a crazy question. My husband and I just recently aquired a new "yard decoration" as I like to call it:D We bought a goat from a neighbor of ours. He did not have her for very long, but was told that she could possibly be prego?! We have had her for a week now and I have never had goats before, but she was just too cute to say no to. What do I need to look for to know for sure if she is pregnant other than kids running around? She did look kinda round when we got her but now she looks like her belly is more saggy under her belly than round on the sides. Please , someone help..... I am new to this whole goat thing.

    I don't know much about goats. However, if you post in this section of the BYC forums: Other Pets & Livestock, or on BackyardHerds.com (BackYardHerds.com), I'm sure other goat owners would be happy to help.

    All I know about goats is, they love to climb, they are very entertaining, and great escape artists. Good luck with your.
