Introducing Ruth, a Mini/Oberhasli doe. She is bred to a buck of the same breed. This is her second year of being a mama. Last year she had triplets, a boy and two girls! She is due on the 24th of this month and she definitely is acting like she is close. I am so excited to see what she gives us this year! Attached is a few recent pictures of her and a picture of the daddy to the soon to be baby/babies.
Here are some pictures from yesterday. She is definitely getting VERY close. I think she is probably going to give birth about on time, her due date is this Sunday. Take a close look at the slope of her croup when viewed from the side and the upright/curved/rigid position of her tail. Then compare to the first few pics I posted, and then the picture I will post in a second of her in labor last year. Her milk bag is also getting full! Sorry, the pictures were taken with my phone so they aren't the best quality.
