    Do boer usually get really big late in pregnancy? Compared to my dairy goats, she's not big at all, so I would guess one or maybe two. But maybe they don't get so wide? Her udder looks pretty full, so I would think pretty soon.

    The doe doesn't look very big to be due soon, so I'd bet just a single! They can be tricky though, so maybe small twins

    She is tiny!

    You could put the buck and doe belly together and thats how big my toggy/alpine nanny was and she delivered an 8# doeling...she looks like she's gonna have twins when she isnt bred. Other goat folks always say wow! she's gonna have babies soon! Nope...she had a baby 2 weeks ago :shrug:

    Her name is MRS. Brown Belly goat......MRS. Brown has a lovely daughter :angel:

    this doe is usually pretty thin shince she stays with the horses and always runs off them when I turn them out in the pasture. So to us she looks pretty big. She starting to have a hard time walking she does more laying around lately

    Mrs Brown is the herd queen and so she eats more and makes more milk than others....

    She had to be 2 and a half feet wide when she laid down while prego...and just the one.... :shrug:

    My girls got more exercise than usual because of a mild winter but they do burn alot of calories just staying warm in winter at zero degrees....and they just get hay no grain while prego so I know they are not overfed...

    Goodluck on doelings....we have 4boys to the 1 little girl so far :help:
