Goat Update - Still kidless


We are a week overdue and still no goat babies. That joke about Josie just being fat is getting less and less funny. Around here we are starting to think about false pregnancy and sneaky goats who would totally fake it just to get more grain out of us. 

We haven't totally given up hope. Josie's udder continues to fill oh so slowly. The biggest change we have noticed (aside from her being OMG STARVING all the time) is that our previously ornery, practically untouchable goat is now the sweetest thing in the world. She all but crawled in my lap when I got home last night. She wants scratches and love and attention when just a few weeks ago she would bob and weave if a hand came near her.

We are still keeping our fingers crossed and our hopes guarded for kids in the near future.

 Go Josie go!


ETA: We got home a little while ago and there is a noticeable increase in her udder. She was acting very subdued and laying down a lot....and this is going to sound crazy, but I swear it looked like her ankles were swollen. I'm thinking if it's gonna happen, it's gonna happen in the next couple days. Positive goat related thoughts, please, folks!
