So... as a few of you know, I have a small herd of 3 Nubian does (female goats). I have now gotten them bred, so I made a forum that I will update every two weeks on Sunday with images of the goats to show how the pregnancy is going.

Feel free to comment, ask questions, and just talk about anything goat related (doesn't have to necessarily be about my ladies, just about goats).

All three are purebred and registered, and we would probably not breed them if this wasn't so, we would likely just keep mixed goats as pets, or maybe just as milkers. A purebred and registered baby is worth a good amount, and we aren't keeping them, so we have made good bloodlines our only reason to breed.

~~~~~
~~~~~

Stella: This girl has the best breeding of all my ladies. Her brother is Castaway, the buck we used for the other two.

Destiny: This lady probably has the poorest bloodlines, but she's a decent doe nonetheless.

Catalina: She also doesn't have breeding quite as good as Stella's, but she's decent as well.

~~~~~

(Click on the goat's name for images)
The gestation period of a goat is about 5 months, and maybe slightly less. Therefore, the kids should be coming a couple days before the actiual due date.
Doe's Name Buck's Name Date bred Date Due
Stella Watson December 21st May 17th
Catalina Castaway October 26th March 22nd
Destiny Castaway October 27th March 23rd

Some facts about goats:
- As mentioned above, a female goat is called a doe, and sometimes referred to as a nanny, especially if she has had kids in the past. Male goats are called bucks/ billys when they are intact, and wethers/ billys when they are banded (castrated).

- Goats are actually rather intelligent, perhaps being just slightly duller than your average dog. Put the mind of a toddler in a creature, and you're given a goat.

- In many places, goats need a mineral supplement in order to continue to function properly, as the land tends to be lacking in some mineral or other. In the case of my goats, since I'm on the central coast of California, they need a whole mineral that mostly comprises of copper.

- Goats only have bottom teeth in the front, meaning they need their hard foods to be cut or shredded so they can fit them in their mouths. Their molars are on both top and bottom, so, if a food fits in their mouths, they can chew it with their molars if they need to.

- A goat chewing its cud (food and such from the rumen, which hasn't been fully digested), that means that it is a content or even happy goat, most likely calm.

- If a goat puffs up, and it isn't cold, then that means that it is angry. It most likely saw something that it believes to be a threat or even simply a nuisance. Catalina often puffs up when she sees children younger than 12, or she could even do this in the presense of a strange adult that has gotten too close to her. Destiny can't puff up too well, due to her curly fur (which has simply been allowed to grow out, as they all have naturally curly fur), but she will come at anybody she notices acting aggressively towards Catalina. (I know this because a group of three young Brazilian men, afraid of goats, stayed at my house. I was walking the does, and I told them to watch out for Catalina, so they decided it would be smart to try to scare her before she goes for them. Destiny then stepped in, and they decided to give my does some space.)

Here's a post for images of the goats during the pregnancy:

Note: I might have some of these points in the pregnancy wrong, my brain decided it didn't want to math, so, I could be a little bit off.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Took them out for a walk (11/6/20 - little over a week along)
~~~
Took them for a walk again (11/22/ 20 - little more than 3 weeks along)
~~~
I went out to give them apple slices (12 /15 /20 - little less than 2 months along)
~~~
Went on a walk ^^ (1/ 7/ 21 - about 2 weeks for Stella, and about 2.5 months for the others)

I'm glad. I love nubians, too ^^
They're my favorite breed, but I'm probably biased. XD
I also like Lamanchas, though.
