    Our Christmas present is starting to ooozzzzee on us!! :p My MIL,FIL bought us two pregnant boer goats for Christmas and we knew that they could possibly have December babies, but that he wasn't exactly sure when they were bred. Well Thursday Freckles was showing a little mucus, and stood up and a big glump dropped. YEAH, looked like mucus plug. So I moved her and our other pregnant gal to the kidding area and we have been keeping an eye on her. Today we got home from church and she is stringing now, so we will wait and see, I'm shooting for our Christmas present to pop out a couple more on Christmas day!! How great would that be!! :dance:

    Wow! That will be a great present. Thanks to all the goat people who take time to post their news. It is truly appreciated by me. I have no goats of my own at this time, so I live vicariously through y'all. & I'm loving it!

    Uhmmm.. How did I know this thread would be about one of your goats about to give birth? What a great Christmas present. I'm happy for you.

    Congrats on the new one to be. I hope all goes well. :)

    No new ones yet, momma is still having discharge, but it is still clear. The stringing she had is mucus hanging from rumpus to floor. She is stretching and kinda rockin' from side to side, so she is trying to get them put in position. I'm hoping she is gonna have them around 1-2 in the warmest part of the day. Merry Christmas to everyone by the way!! :)

    I just got in from checking her and she has some blood streaks now in her discharge so we are hoping she is getting close. We have no idea how she kids, cause the guy we bought her from pretty much let them fend for themselves. Hopefully we will know more soon. :hobbyhors

    Oh my.....you are making ME want to start pacing around :help: :p . Hope she kids well for you. Sounds like she is REAL close to giving birth. Hope you don't mind if I say this....but if you are not sure how well she doesk kidding I would stay with her until she kids or at least check on her lots (I am sure you are already doing this as it sounds like it from your posts :) ). I hope I wasn't being rude or pretences(sp).......

    Here is to a happy and healthy kidding!

    She is the worlds slowest goat. :flame: She is still producing clear goo, and is rubbing on fences, but is very quiet and calm. Her goo does have some blood streaks in it on occassion, which I am not overly concerned with as long as she is acting fine and the goo isn't all red. I will take a pic of her a little later on and let you see how she looks. GIVE ME MY BABIES YOU SILLY GOAT!!!! :grump:
