we have had 2 goats in the back, cannot be seen from the house. The kids have been milking them. I glance once in a while but more at the children and how they are doing than at these particular goats. Last week we moved them up front, so they are with the other goats and can be seen from the house. The first time I *really* looked at the LaMancha she looked a bit bloated... she was eating well, acting normal except for laying around the yard a bit more than the others. She just keeps slowly getting bigger. It is a low carriage.. she is sort of sunk in near the hipbones, backbone. She looks like she is pregnant with twins.. just a nice double bulge, one on each side of her body. It doesnt feel like it is full of air etc.. it is fairly solid. She was not *fat* when we got her... I dont remember when we got her.. probobly May or June/ possibly July. She has not been with a buck on our property. I am used to the vulva of a pregnant doe to be smoother (not wrinkled) and pinker. WE are still milking her. I am beginning to dry her up, just because???? I guess I could heat her milk to see if there is any colostrum mixed up in there??? What do you think?
