Pregnant?

By the looks of their rapidly expanding bellies, I’m pretty confident the girls are pregnant.  I never know for sure because we pen breed with a leased buck and I have yet to see the actual act, and I don’t ultrasound them either.  Based on the signs I observed while the buck was here, I am thinking they’ll be due March 5, 6 and 7.  My fourth doe was bred later and will be due in mid May.  I’m anxious to have goat milk again!  Getting these pictures was quite challenging as my yearling doe, Basil, was all over me, chewing the camera strap, jumping on my back when I kneeled down, and just generally being a pest.  Perhaps when she has her kids in May she’ll grow up.
