Goat in labor?

While mucking out the goat barn, someone pointed out Natasha bagging up (her udder has taken shape, filling out). Suddenly, we had to not only muck out the barn, but adapt it for maternity care. We purchased a buck last fall, and it looks like it "took" sooner than we realized. You can see in the photo, the brown goat is very intently concentrating. Natasha is a Nubian Pygmy cross, hence her short stature.

During a long night napping on and off in the barn, Natasha delivered a healthy little doeling, Natalie.
