A Contest!

BossyToes is due to kid July 6th. We decided to have a little contest. All you have to do is leave a comment saying when you think BossyToes will have her baby/babies and how many you think she will have. There are photos that I just took this afternoon that may help you decide. Whoever comes the closest will win a Diva Gift Basket. If there are more than one with the correct answers I will draw a name from those. So have a look at the photos. Get out your crystal ball or whatever you use and let us know when and how many BossyToes will deliver.

City Mouse said...

I'm going to have to say 2 kids on July 7th, which is the happiest day. It's the day I am going back to the mountains, so i figure BossyToes would want all the happiest events to fall on the same day ... makes for a bigger party!

Jo said...

I looked at my tea leaves and they told me Bossy Toes is going to be the proud Mama of two kids and they will come on my lucky
number 9.

Wow she looks like she is going to pop at any minute. Poor baby.

Janera said...

Oh, Lawsie, Miz Scarlett, I don't know nuthin' 'bout birthin' goats!

But I do love Miz BossyToes and I think she should have those babies soon or she's going to bust something. Something.

So, let's allow her to have those babies July 5th, in the middle of the night. Two of them.

Poor thing.

Marci said...

Two kids on the 5th.

Lib said...

zzop357 said...

I say tomorrow night,in the early hours of the 5th. She's pretty swollen in certain areas.
Is she leaking milk yet?
Good luck w/ 2 new kids you're having.One of each I think.
Happy 4th and be safe and cool.

Hi Peggy!
My guess is 2 on the 10th! Bossy Toes is so adorable. I love all your sweet animals!
Thanks for coming by to join in my giveaway! I love your blog and will be back to see you often and see when those darling little kids are born! Please come back to see me!
Hugs & happy 4th! Sherry

Cathy said...

Hello Peggy

I'd say 3 babes - one side is more pronounced than the other and maybe late afternoon or early evening on the due date.
Take care
Cathy

Rosie said...

Bossy Toe!!! I can't believe my little goat child is so big! Peggy, I think she's going to have one ginormous buck kid sometime tomorrow. Probably late afternoon or evening. Have you got calcium drench onhand? Her mom had trouble having her and just gave up pushing which is why we had to go in and pull Bossy out. Bossy was oversized, too. If I'd had the calcium drench to give her mom, it wouldn't have been a problem. Bossy hopefully won't repeat that. Give her a snuggle for me! She's going to be a great mom.

Jean said...

What an intersting and lovely blog! I found it by accident while readingcomments on my daughter Lynda's blog "Food Fun Farm" which of course I read every day !
I love the audio and everything else too.
If only all man could be as happy and content in their "Home Haven" and life in general could just slow down

Best wishes,
Jean, Fourways, South Africa

Barbara said...

six kids on the 6th and after that she will get a spa treatment. Grin

Brenda said...

I think she will deliver on the 8th with three kids.She looks pretty miserable.

Goat Yoda said...

Bossy Toe (no 's') will likely do what Rosie said- one big single buck kid, likely in three-four days- looking at her ligaments and amount of squish to her butt, she's not ready quite yet.

Also, what Rosie said about calcium is very important- I had to pull Bossy Toe out because Nod lost her uterine tone and could not push. I'd give it to her when you start seeing her walking around with a 'broken tail' all day long- those are tail head contractions and usually withing 24-36 hours after you see those, she'll kid. Her butt will get way more squishy too.

Tossing Pebbles in the Stream said...

What a lovely young goat with a wonderfully formed udder. (It's a guy obsession we never seem to out grow).

My guess in late on the 5th.

I will think of you surrounded by your goats as the firework display goes up around you. I hope Fort Bragg doesn't let off the big guns.

Mrs.Garcia said...

Bossy Toes I think twins and I think she will have the twins on around Late Night July 6th and Early Morning July 7th.
God Bless,

ikkinlala said...

I'm guessing 3 kids on the morning of the 7th.

Heidi said...

OH Man - what an udder. Or as Lispy says - titty bumps - :) I say 1 kid on the 9th.... hope I am close! Good luck Bossy Toes..

Dena ~ swaddlecottage said...

Twins, July 14th. Tweedit's got at least 15 little guinea keets here, and Mrs. Guinea is setting on 21 more eggs in the neighbors' front yard. Goats maybe someday. Cheers!

debi said...

Twins on the 8th. Looks like you are up late like me. So I am not the only one who gets upset over idiots with fire.Your poor goats. We are planning to get 2 pygmy babie for the grandkids soon. I am glad we didn't have them tonight.Poor babies. Now that I look at the pics I think her milk looks like its come in pretty good. Maybe I am off a day or two.

Lib said...

dixie said...

Poor Bossy Toes. She's wish'n the 3 kids were already here. But alas she'll have to wait a little longer. As I know nothing about birthing farm animals or any animals for that matter, I'd say July 8.

meggie said...

I will guess 2 kids on 8th July. Poor girl will be so relieved!

Jules said...
