This is Semi-Sweet. She is a 7 year old Nigerian Dwarf that has kidded once about 5 years ago. Since then she has been a lady of leisure. Last year she was dying for babies. She was one big raging hormone. She even bagged up but I knew she wasn't with kid because there hadn't been a buck around. This year I decided to breed her to the handsome Captain January so she spent about a week in the honeymoon suite.
She would be due around June 8th...I think. Since then she has not made me feel very confident about her being pregnant. She has continued to be one raging hormone. She is acting very bucky and has been chasing the other girls around and at times acting like she is in heat....but that's hard to tell because she always acts like she's in heat.
Once again, this year she is bagging up and getting a bit of a tummy. I put her in the milking stand last week and could feel nothing. Not a kick to give me hope.
So I took pictures of her faux udder that I am deep down hoping is a true udder.
If you look at something long enough you can imagine anything. I am imagining that her tail is even changing and getting little hollow places along the top. My mind is telling me she's not pregnant but my heart still hopes to have some Nigerian babies this year....and some sweet candy milk.
What do you think?
