Sorry that the baby hasn't come yet.
Not that they listen to us asking them to come!
Having "relations" with your husband is supposed to help soften the cervix and move things along.
Using a breast pump or nipple stimulation can help strengthen contractions. But those...
Are you in 4H? Or FFA?
I think she looks fatter thsn a 3, but again I can't feel her.
Most people showing Boers do a bunch of exercises with them. Pulling tires, climbing halfway up a ladder to eat and all sorts of things.
But those things I have had very little to do with.
I suggest you...
Again... I don't care about her belly.
But I do not see any sign of ribs, and I don't see any sign of her backbone.
To know just how fat she is, or isn't, you need to feel along her spine and compare her to the diagram I posted.
If she is dry and not pregnant, I am not sure why she...
You will have to research as to the positioning of twins.... but there are ways to naturally encourage babies to end up like they should.
The midwives we went to would always check the position of the baby. I can't remember at which stage of pregnancy they cared (super tiny, and it doesn't...
I always plan.
So even though we had had 4 successful vaginal births (hospital, clinic, car, then home), when birth 5 went south I knew HOW I wanted them to do the c, and EXACTLY how to sew everything back up.
Kid 5 is now 13... so I can no longer remember the terms etc.
But I researched...
So... if you restrict her brush intake, the rumen is usually naturally smaller.
Not a good thing in my book, since less brush means you are now feeding her expensive grain or hay.
But maybe you need her to look sleek for a show???
I know close to nothing about showing.
Well.... a huge belly simply could mean she has great rumen development, and is eating a bunch of brush.
A belly on a goat has little to do with fat.
For fat on a goat you look at ribs and spine.
You want to be able to feel the individual ribs, but not really see them. You want to feel the...
Uh... that is too simplistic.
Ok, plants are characterized into decreasers, increasers, and invaders.
The decreasers are the plants that are most preferred by your animals. The sheep will search them out first and eat them hardest.
As the sheep keep seeking out and eating the decreasers...
Just tossing in... I greatly prefer cutting out testicles. Heal way faster, way less pain over all. Just nicer. I like doing it at a month of age. There are many you tube videos you can watch to learn how.
Yep... 2 is so much nicer, easier to get them out.
But also... if you let it grow really tall... often livestock will not eat it (depending on what kinds of animals), and keeping pasture short-ish is a better use of resources.
It boils down to the fact that you HAVE to walk your pastures and be able to identify at least the top 10 most...
When I needed quiet the kids had to do laps around the house while I had my feet up in the livingroom.
So they were outside, I was inside.
Rules were that they had to stay together, and they had to be fast so I knew they were safe (so they were never out of sight for long, livingroom...
My kids have been/are being all homeschooled.
You first need to see what the rules are in your state. The rules for homeschooling vary WILDLY from one state to the next.
I love homeschooling. Where kids have issues you just keep trying different approaches or repeating material until they...
