Hi yall! According to my wife and my calculations, my nanny goat, Sissy, should have had her babies about a week ago, but she has not. She doesn't even act like she is in labor. I felt her belly and can still feel movement in there, but sissy is not "presenting" at all, nor does she even seem to be in the process of birthing.

Would you please pray for her that all is well with her and her babies, and that she has them at the perfect timing?

Thank you, family. :good:

Yeah, wife and I talked it over that we must have just totally missed her time of studding by a week or more. We're just watching and waiting... :?

I just put the animals up for the night a little while ago, and Sissy up and decided she was going for a run around the place before going to bed. She hopped out of the barn and ran around the yard one time as I herded her back in. Not the kind of behavior I would expect from a birthing nanny goat, but what do I know? :pardon:

Thank you for your prayers... :rose:

Yes. Pics for sure. I love baby goats!

Has Sissy "bagged up" yet? It's not always a good ways to tell when they will deliver. I think my doe bagged up a couple of weeks beforehand.

Betchya lookin' forward to some fresh milk! Yum.

And I do love her milk. It's the sweetest best milk I have ever tasted for sure! :)

Jon, when I had my beloved goat several years ago, I learned to make some soft cheeses with it. One of the cheeses was like cream cheese. I would add strawberries to it for a strawberry-creamcheese spread for toast. It was delicious!

We discovered that if the goats are kept out of the scrub oaks, and given a lot of alfalfa and some grains, they tended to put out some mild, sweet milk. And this is coming from someone who wasn't fond of goat milk. I learned to like it. And, I never had any problem selling the milk. At the time, it sold for $3.00/quart which was a lot of money for a quart of milk at that time, but between selling the milk and eggs, our family ate for free. I never made any profit, because the sales just covered the feed, but it took the financial burden off of me, so that our family share didn't cost anything.

I also learned to love goat meat. I like it a whole lot better than lamb. Lemons cut the 'goat' flavor in the meat while garlic makes it taste stronger. But it's wonderful barbqued too!
