If Dixie were pregnant and her udder was larger, she would be in her last month of a 5 month pregnancy. Udders do not form until the end of pregnancy in goats. So neither Luke or Whiskey would be the sire.
She can easily have a precocious udder....my Saanens with milky lines get them all the time usually after 10 mths old.

it where a doe who has never been bred comes into milk. she freshens with out the need for a buck i also have heard it refer to does who give birth one year but dont need to be rebred because they dont stop producing milk. Its because of their milk lines the more you breed for strong milk production lines it can happen. some times the produce a large amount of milk but most i heard about only produce small amounts of milk at a time unless we talking about the ones that have a kids and are still able to milk for a longer time then what is normal for a doe.
