I have attempted that. Maybe I am not pressing hard enough but I don't feel anything that feels like pencils. On her or her brother. I tried both lol.
I am gonna keep practicing though hopefully one day I will figure it out! LOL

Well, shoot! Guess you just have ligament-less goats then! :gig

Have you tried putting them on a milking stand? Some of my goats don't like it when I check their ligs so it's much easier to feel them on the stand. It did take me a bit to figure out how to find them as well. I found that you kinda have to push down?? If that makes any sense...

What?!? Already?? That was the shortest waiting thread ever!! He is adorable!! Do you think she's done?
I know! I thought the same thing! I think she is done.. but what do I know. I would assume by now she would have had them all, but this is my first time with baby goats so I am really clueless. She is still a little restless but she hasn't laid down or anything.

CONGRATS!!!!! So adorable. I had guessed around Thanksgiving a while back from her pics. Not too far off. 😁

She may have just one. Normally others appear within 20 mins. Watch to be sure she passes placenta...it may hang for a short time, do not pull it!!

Im so excited for you. Kids are as much fun as cute!
