Balancing a watermelon on four chopsticks

Poor, sweet, poor Jakarta. She is one of my favorite little does - a two year old we got from FOF Caroline last year. She is one of the spunkiest, most playful goats in our herd.

Or rather she was.

Now, still two weeks out from her due date, the poor dear is a Chipotle burrito on toothpicks. A watermelon on chopsticks. A city bus on broomsticks.

Poor, sweet, poor Jakarta can barely get her giant self out to the pasture, and when the rest of the goats wander to the very farthest part of our farm to see what's good to eat, Jakarta parks it under a tree and just hopes they'll come back.

It is heartbreaking. Look at my sweet girl. Compare her belly to her wee head. I think there could be quads in there.

Oh poor mommy! She is ready to burst. She has to have quads in there—my god! Let's hope she has a speedy and safe delivery. Even if it is 2 weeks away....

Our sheep are still 2 weeks plus away and are starting to waddle along nicely now. They sure do get W I D E. The cows are really looking pregnant too. They are due any time now. Who knows?!!!

That really is one pregnant goat.

I hope its not a single. You might need to get out your sewing kit.
