Here they are:

Phoenix Rising, yearling Oberhasli doe:



Trillium, yearling Nubian doe:



Trillium next to my 2 1/2 month old LaMancha doeling. And by the way, the ground is level between the 2 pens:

Thanks dragon!   Wink  They look to be in good shape, though small.  That Obi girl is beautiful!  Congrats on your new girls!

Actually, Vicki, the 2 1/2 month old Lamancha, is one of the smallest of the kids. That poor Nubian is even smaller than Vicki. There is almost  a year to the day between those 2. I have a pic of one of the Nubian bucklings next to Trillium and he dwarfs her! Again, he is only 2 1/2 months old and she's almost 15 months old.

I checked her out really good and I don't feel any sign of udder development, nor do I feel anything like a kid on her right side or lower belly. I'm betting she is not bred. I hope I am right!

The Obi girl is the right size for her age. She came from a different farm and has had the best of care since the day she was born. They have a gorgeous herd of Oberhasli and Nigerian Dwarfs.

The Nubian was born and bred on a very nice farm, but was sold to someone who really doesn't understand proper goat care, even though they do have several Nubians.

Beautiful, just beautiful! 
Pheonix looks like the Obi, "Paprika", that I was supposed to get earlier this spring.  Sad

Their coats are so nice & shiney!   Smiley

And yet I have seen Obis that didn't have that shiny coat like they are supposed to have.  Usually it is from poor food and dry skin.  Lynn has a really dark chamoisse color that she has worked hard to get.  All her goats are that shade of chamoisse.

Yeah, looking at her pen of Obies is like a fanatasy.....all those blood bay beauties.  She's done a great job of breeding them.

I don't think I've ever seen an "Ugly" Obi...even those with lesser care are beautiful animals.  I've only had 2 encounters with Obi's...and not only do I adore their coloration and markings, but their personalities are hard to beat.

They are, usually, calm and loving goats. And the many different shades of bay are nice.

If she was bred and due the 22nd I would surely think you would see evidence of it by now.  Even my 2 small does that I wasn't sure of left no doubt the last month before they were due.  She doesn't look small in the pictures until you said how old her neighbor was!!   Do you think will excellent food and care she will be a decent size- height wise- by next year?( if not bred ,of course)
