    I projected her due date to be around now but don't have specifics. She is bred to a blue eyed, tri colored buck. He multiple champions in his line. Any guesses on when? Her ligs are still going strong. Her lady pars appear to be getting bigger. The vet found at least two heart beats. BTW sorry about the pic. overload.

    She's not ready to drop yet. When she is, you will see a waxy substance on her teats (if memory serves me correctly) and her vaginal area will change. There is plenty of info online (and in books) to tell you what things will look like when she's ready to drop.

    My other doe is going to drop today because ligs have been soft for the past couple days and last night they disappeared.

    Do you have another beautiful kid yet? Newbie to goats myself but is there a discharge before heat cycle? I have a lamancha/pygmy mix that is 1 year old. Just started with goats.

    Yes I do have another one! The discharge thing only happens with some does. My one always does but the other is next to impossible to tell if she's in heat. Let me check for pictures of the male that was born the other week.
