She is quiet, takes the special treats out of the hay and basically ignores the rest. Isabella is our Herd Queen. We watch the other goats defer to her. The littles run up to her and look at her adoringly with their tail wagging seeking approval or even an acknowledgement. They seem so happy when she nudges them with her nose.
Corina is due the day after Isabella. She is quiet and a bit reserved. Corina is an Alpine. They make excellent mothers. They have abundant milk. Corina was a good mother with her last kids. What do you think? One or Two?
Our girls may not look great in a bikini or have big boobs like Pamela Sue Anderson. But at least they're real. Only time will tell. As their delivery date gets closer we watch for changes in the goats udder. They will expand and get tighter or shiny in appearance. The mom will sometimes begin calling to their unborn kid. Its a very soft call or talking to their belly. If we can catch this on video we will definitely post it.
Bella's nose is in great shape. Thank you to everyone who gave advice and possibilities about her "bumps". They have healed up, no one else developed the ailment. The internet was an excellent tool for researching possibilities. This looked completely different from sore mouth or goat pox. She is well and happy. We just have to keep the nettles away from the goats. If there is something that is not good for goats to get into, they certainly will. Much Love and Prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm.
