Okay I have know clue if my goat is prego or not.. but if she is she should kid this weekend.. we'll see fingers crossed.
So I was looking at her udders to see if they were filling up, and couldn't really tell. Never l really examined them after she was completely dry. But I gave her a lil squeeze and milk streamed out. And I noticed the other day while she was bucking like a nut that milk streamed out too.
Now she had not been milked since October some time. And the other day I had a friend come over that really wanted to try some goat milk. I tokd them that I had none, but then thought , why not see what I can get out of her?
So I mikled her out, and got a cups worth. Put it in the fridge. So before my company drank it, I thought I would taste it first..
Let me say it was EXTREMELY salty!!!
So is that Colostrum?
My company actually liked it and drank it up, but I don't think I could have.
Now my hubby has read all about the healing effects from drinking goat colostrum and has been looking forward to drinking it, but now I am really wondering if he can hack doing that if colostrum is real salty like that.
So does anyone know if this was colostrum?
And what colostrum taste like?
And a week before a goats due is there any way I can know she's going to have a baby soon?
