Here you can see the babies have moved to sitting much lower in her belly than before. They were up higher by her hip bones and just this week are sitting lower. She also doesn't look *quite* as fat. The girls' udders are definitely getting bigger, not huge yet. And so far everything else the same.... no changes or signs... yet! Soooo close! I can't wait! Both girls ligs are still firm and no discharge yet. Udders a little bigger, but no other signs yet. Knowing my luck it'll be on the very last day! Next day: Minyette had a little discharge for the first time today, but I've heard that's normal. Also, she is pawing the ground a lot, but still has all her ligs so I don't think it's time yet... Getting soooo close though!!! Feb 15th: Yes Minyette's udder is HUGE almost as big as it was when I was milking her last summer. I know it can't be long. Ghia's is bigger but not huge yet. I know I haven been writing a lot about Minyette, but I haven't been neglecting my other ones I promise. Ghia is due at the same time and is bigger than I've ever seen her, but nowhere as big as Minyette! I'm hoping for twin pinks from her!!! Funny how she doesn't look as big in the pics as in real life. Love my goaties.
So... fat... can't... get... up...!
In 2009, Steve and I moved to a rural rental on the outskirts of San Diego to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and to get away from the chemicals in our food and in our life. Little did we know that just a few years later we would be real farmers; growing fruits, vegetables and herbs, as well as many different kinds of chickens, ducks, turkey, bunnies, guineas, quail, goats and more! We left the suburbs for "Green Acres" and haven't looked back since!
