First of the Month - April

I'm joining Jan at Murrieta 365 for her First of the Month meme all this year. Here are the ground rules per her site: "The goal is to capture one thing repeatedly on the first of each month. It can be a landscape, a person, an animal, a project; whatever your focus is, is fine. It can even be a record of where you are each First of the Month."
I am focusing on my Alpine doe, Abigail, and her first pregnancy and kidding. She is due to kid the middle of April.


"Hi, it's me, Abigail, checking in with everyone for the first of the month. I sure hope my kids come soon but Candy says I have about 7 to 10 days to go before they are born."


"As you can see, I'm as big as a house and I even have trouble getting up when I have been laying down chewing my cud! The other day, when I was out of my pen browsing, mean Esmeralda, the miniature donkey, chased me and chased me! Candy told her to stop but she wasn't listening! It was hot and I got very tired and Candy was concerned that I might have early labor because I was humping up a bit that evening but everything is okay now."


"You can see the kids on my right side and I have started to develop an udder so that I can feed them after they are born. Also, my tail is sort of "disjointed" which happens to us goats before kidding. Candy has been very nice to me and makes sure I get plenty of yummy alfalfa and goat cereal so that my kids will be healthy when they are born."


"Oh, excuse me for a moment while I take care of this itch! I love having my horns for when my back itches! Ahhh!"
"Well, that is all for this month but I will make sure Candy has lots of pictures of my cute kids for next month! I will also make sure she shows them to you when they are born so you don't have to wait and wait...like me..."

I'm glad the chasing didn't bring on an early labor. Such a pretty girl. :)

Ok...that last picture just made me chuckle.
how exciting to be expecting kids!

I've read lots of blog and blogger that are right now. I'm starting to wonder if a goat would be something for us...hmmm... certainly would cut down on the mowing and gas bill to do it!

can't wait to see the baby,~Pat

Girl, you haven't even lost your figure! I don't like donkeys either. Nasty things. Wish you all the best with kidding.

We have one female lamancha that still has her horns. She's always scratching her back with her horns too. Cute.
