    TWINS!!!!!!

    You're welcome! I feel so fortunate to have experienced the birth with my Ma. I hope you do as well with Newton. Actually she did poop and pee more often, everyday there was a build up of the big event. I knew when the real thing started, it was a lot of signs at once.

    TWINS!!!!!!

    Hi newton! Just thinking of all the other momma goats so close to bringing us new kids, I wanted to share a bit of what happened with us on Sunday. The day before Ma finally hatched her babies, I saw her contractions coming on and stopping. It was making her hoohoo tighten and relax, like she...

    Nigerian dwarf doe accidentally bred by Nubian buck.

    Placenta is passing so this means she's done right? One doe has weak hocks they seem double jointed. Kinda bend the wrong way and lock and hard to walk but she's trying. Both nursed a bit.

    Nigerian dwarf doe accidentally bred by Nubian buck.

    I'm in the barnyard, with the goats after a grazing walk. Ma is panting and stretching. Her vulva sinks in and she grinds her teeth. Belly is low and tail area sunk, its very noticeable. Udder grew over night too. I'm on the slowest moving crazy train!

    TWINS!!!!!!

    Oh Newtons person, that's very frustrating! By your posts you seem very responsible. Just let your dad know that it would mean so much to you to keep Newton and a baby for companionship. I hope it works out. Watching your thread and praying for healthy kids and momma.

    Nigerian dwarf doe accidentally bred by Nubian buck.

    False labor today, I was sure we would have kids today, but just pre labor I suppose. Tomorrow is exactly 145 days from when I took her from the bucks. Here is a pic of an absolutely relaxed Ma that I took tonight when I said " goodnight, I love you goats", lol, my ❤️.

    Nigerian dwarf doe accidentally bred by Nubian buck.

    Hoping and praying for twins or more! I thought there were no ligaments today, her tail area is smooshy, but the ligaments became noticeable again a few hours later. I'll keep you posted. Thanks everyone for your concern and support. Almost there!

    Nigerian dwarf doe accidentally bred by Nubian buck.

    That discharge was from her vulva, its the first time she has had that since I got her. When I first got her she had some discharge, so I took her to the vet for the pregnancy test on the 25th of October. Maybe it was her heat, I'm thinking you are correct, breeding was the last possible day or...

    Here is a cute pic, since I violate this poor goat daily, with feeling ligs and taking photos of her hooha. If it wasn't for treats she would never like me.:hu

    Nigerian dwarf doe accidentally bred by Nubian buck.

    Thanks to all the insightful things I've read on Backyardherds, the goats are in much better hands than they were before I found y'all, thank you! For example: Ma has been going for walks often, to keep her in shape, Cinnamon runs circles around her, she needed some space too. I don't have...

    Love to hear this, it gives me a bit more hope that things will be ok. Thank you!

    Nigerian dwarf doe accidentally bred by Nubian buck.

    I agree, we are excited! We really do need a playful friend for the young goat, she's much more spunky than Ma and tends to pester her. Scary that we could lose Ma if things go wrong. We definitely will wether if we get a buckling. Last night I checked ligaments, what I noticed is that they...

    Nigerian dwarf doe accidentally bred by Nubian buck.

    This evening I was brushing the girls in the barn, they sure are losing their fluff! I saw a few things I haven't seen before. 1. Ma was being impatient and rude to her little daughter; they share a stall at night, well they share everything. Ma was trying to hump her and head butting her...
