Glad the goats don't have the same hang ups about pregnancy weight we tend to have sometime. I was able to shoot some pictures of the does due next month - lounging in the sun and enjoying the beautiful weather we have been blessed with this January - and wow, are they beautiful or what ? I love rubbing on their big bellies and giving them scratches in places they can no longer reach.
Christie is as big as a house and with more than a month to go, we will have to start carting her around the yard soon :) She is housed separately with Zia as she tends to get irritated with the other does towards the end of her pregnancy and we felt it best not to risk her pregnancy this late in gestation. They get to roam outside most of the day getting their excercise but not competing for space or feed with the rest of the herd.
was large when we bred her as a dry yearling and she continues to get bigger, past 180lbs now, not yet 2 years old. She is normally fairly wide, pregnancy just accentuates this trait. Looking forward to see this doe freshen :)
is due on the same day as Fern and is working hard to catch up with her in size. I like the way she is maturing and filling out, she will be a two year old 2nd freshener.
And finally a shot of the big mamma's munching on hay ..... happy and healthy, I could watch them all day :)
