In addition to the goats and chickens we also have a couple of two year old Irish Dexter heifers one of which is due to calve on July 11th. They are both currently for sale, as hubby has asked that I concentrate on the goats, since they are safer for our children to be around.
Last night I separated Matilda from her half sister Maggy and penned her in the corral where I could keep a closer eye on her. Today I gave her a good brushing and had an extensive hands on inspection. Her udder appears to be bagging up quite nicely and I could just barely feel her ligaments, so she seems to be right on schedule. Of course we are hoping for a heifer calf, but at this point any healthy calf would be just fine.
