When my sheep get pregnant you can’t tell. Even after shearing they basically look the same. It’s not ’til the milk bag shows up in the last two weeks that you can be sure they will deliver. But goats are not so subtle. Here are what my gals look like right now. Do you think they are expecting?
Cheerios is still of very small stature. She is the doe we got from our neighbor and is a Nubian/Boer/Toggenburg mix. She does have a small baby bump. I tried to check for an udder and she said, “Excuse me, what do you think you are doing.”
Here is PopTart. She is actually a month younger than Cheerios but is much larger. She is Toffee’s baby and is Nubian/Boer. Both of these young girls had Twizzler as a father.
And now, for the Grand Dame, my 3 year old Toffee (Nubian/Boer). She’s the one I’m not sure about. What do you think? Is she pregnant?
So if all goes well I’m thinking two sets of twins and a single. I should stay out of the guessing game because I’m not successful with it, but it’s fun. 🙂
