I spent a little time out with my goats this morning.
Watching them dive into their clover hay for breakfast!
In this pic is Hope she is the black goat.
You can see the back end of Abby, Sunshine's head and
Mariah is the one standing on her back legs in the hay rack..
In this pic is Sasha and Mariah standing up,
April is the big goat and Dottie is the spotted one behind her..
This is everyone Except you cant see Abby!
She managed to almost completely avoid my camera today!
This is not exactly how I planned for this hay rack to work.
They are suppose to eat through the smaller squares Not over the top!
But I guess it helps build those muscles!
I am starting to get a little worried....
I am pretty sure all of them settled.
My Nubian's are singing to their babies every night.
But some of them are already showing?!?!
And they are only At the most 2.5 months along....
Of course Dottie has looked pregnant for about 6 months now!
Ethel is the one really showing..
She has always had twins if she does like her Mom, Dottie
then its possible for it to be triplets this time..
Sunshine the herd queen!
She loves to stand up on the hay rack like this.
Of course Van the wether..
Who is not expecting anything but more goat berries!
Everyone is due sometime between March 6 and the end of March... But with the way those bellies are shaping up I am getting concerned about the Number of babies they may have... Last year Sunshine, Dottie and April all had triplets. Ethel and Hope had twins...Mariah, Abby and Sasha will be first time moms. About a month before everyone is due I am going to start them back on the red raspberry tea. It cant hurt anything hopefully it will help. I had to help to much last year with babies not being quite in position.
So all I have to do is wait.... and wait... and wait.....
Tomorrow is the shortest day/Longest night of the year! After that we get a little more Sunshine each day!
