The does bellies and udders are starting to get bigger now, which is a sign I can start the countdown until the new Spring goat babies arrive! I even added a countdown clock at the bottom of this blog to count down the days until the first of the kids are due to be born. The clock on this blog is just for the first does due dates though, the rest of the does due dates are scattered from the end of March, through April and clear up to the first part of May. I usually get them in with the bucks in a timely manner so that they are all due in about a 3 week period, but that didn't happen this year. So it looks like we will have a long, drawn out kidding season and lots of waiting ahead of us. Waiting is the name of the game and there is still a little over a month to go yet before those first kids start hitting the ground, but the countdown has definitely begun.
Speaking of new gadgets on the blog, I would love to get opinions on the three new links to other stories on this blog that are now at the bottom of each post. They are supposed to be links to other relevant posts. I don't know how relevant they will be to the post they are linked too but I am wondering if people like them.....don't like them? Opinions?
*In the picture above, Rose (dark red goat) Trouble (middle goat) and Rock seem to be in waiting mode too. They are starting to udder up now. Icy, the white goat in front is one of the last ones due and hasn't started to show much yet. Bayla watches over the goats in the background.
