Nettie didn’t look any closer to kidding than she did last night. She wasn’t dilated, wasn’t grunting, and her bag still isn’t anything close to what it looked like last year just before she kidded. Her belly isn’t as large as last year either. Maybe it was because she had twins the past two years….and maybe if I’m lucky, she’ll only have one kid this year.
I let her out of the pen for breakfast (which she didn’t finish) and to roam around the goat yard for a while. She’s definitely a bit cranky this morning and the fact that she didn’t eat all her grain makes me think that we’re getting close. I gave her a few hours out of the kidding pen but when I found her underneath the barn again I called her up & put her back in the pen. So the wait continues.
