Goats have a 5 month gestation, and since we started breeding on August 20th, 2016 – we should start having kids being born “around” January 20th, 2017. That’s only a few days away, and so any moment we’ll be seeing new baby goats. Certainly the girls are looking pregnant. This one is simply searching for a comfortable resting position. (still except for her labored breathing). Our two llamas to either side.
And more problematic – this doe could well have triplets or quads. They are taking so much out of her that she’s not standing up. Still, she’s got a voracious appetite. We’ve got her separated from the other does so that whe can eat without competition, and we’re giving her supplemental minerals “CMPK” – in the dairy world. Its a paste, and be the equivalent of Cod Liver Oil for humans – its a struggle to get it into her mouth, and keep it there until swallowed. Stay tuned.
