    Being an auction goat hard to know too much about her.

    Did you bred her or did she come bred That will help somewhat with dates.

    Age of goat if you need help Google goat teeth age

    Does her udder look like she has kidded before

    It is really hard getting bred does that you have no idea about when they will kid I had 2 last year, and was a nervous wreck.

    when we bought her she had a kid at her side...I don't think that she is very old... she is with my billy... but i never seen him top her so I don't know when she was bred...I had to seperate him from her today because he was trying on her... he is also trying on my mini horse(who is only 9 months old)... Her bag is even fuller today... hopefully it won't be long.. she lays down alot today but I am not noticing any labor signs... I can't wait to see her baby

    When she's ready to kid the areas on either side of her tail will hollow out and she'll have some mucous discharge too.

    Bucks can be extra obnoxious around this time of year [​IMG]
