    The first pic is of Clyde whom I hope is going to be the daddy of the soon to ba kids in the very near future. He is such a does man. :0



    Here is a pic of our pregnant Bonnie. We think she will be delivering somtime next month. We are unable to determine as to when Clyde may have gotton ahold of her, so we are sayin it will be Nov. to Dec. since we have had her since July.

    Hope she has babys soon. She looks about as big(belly size) as my girl-Zelda. We got her in the very beginning of August . She is 1 1/2 years old. Never been around a male until she came here. And of course Houdini had to welcome her right way (after her speration time). So I am hoping for babies in the near future!!!!

    Your goats are very cute...
    Love there names too..

    Quote:Im not sure what happened, we werent home. The baby was too big and not coming out, its head was out and it was stuck and already dead. I could not deliver it, but my DH helped and we got her out. Poor baby. Mom seems okay, I am keeping an eye on her for infection, but she is up running around, eating like a pig (as usual) and playing with her very preggers sister....I suspect that these sisters are actually too young to be bred. I have read that it can cause a lot of problems for the female if she is bred to young, and I really think they are only about a year old if that themselves.
    Thats the only advice I can give, keep a close eye on them, and dont let them breed too young, they are not big enough or mature enough to deliver, it is really sad.

    Sorry to hijack your thread - I really do love your Clyde...he really does look like my naughty beast Dawg, who used to run after my three wheeler, and I finally had to pen him up because he kept taking my potbelly pig over to the neighbors yard and eating their pets food. He really was like a dog (Hmmm, why was his name Dawg?) to our family for a number of years....
