    "Baby Girl" (poor thing never got a real name) is 14 months old. She is probably bred. If so, due for the end of May most likely. She had a couple "heats" after that, but would not let the buck breed her at all, at least not any time I was around. So we figured they weren't real heats.

    Yesterday I noticed she had some discharge, quite a bit, her tail was quite wet. She went in with the buck, and as before, wouldn't let him breed her (I didn't want him to anyway at this point, getting a better buck in about a month, can just breed early next breeding season). Today I noticed she has bloody discharge! I got a picture of it with the cell phone. I emailed it to the computer so I could post it, but the stupid thing hasn't showed up yet. I will add it when it does.

    Oh, she acts fine, ate well etc. I didn't see anything in her pen.

    I hope not, I guess if she does, the bright side is I can breed her to this better buck sooner.

    I will keep an eye on her.

    If she does abort at this stage in pregnancy, will there be much to find?

    Yes, I think Jodi has been the culprit. I noticed the last couple of days them too sparring a bit, and today when we went for a walk, we take the goats in the woods once per day for exercise and forage, , they were really going at it. Baby girl was egging it on too. They're seperated, though probably too late. I'll watch and see what develops. She hasn't had any more discharge since this morning.

    She's definately acting different tonight. Quiet and needy. She was calling to her mom some and tried to follow me out of the pen, looking for some comfort. So I put her mom in there with her. I have a feeling she's going to abort tonight or tomorrow. :(

    I had a doe that did this not to long ago and it was a UTI, She is fine now. Hope that yours is not a miscarriage. Gave my doe vitamin C and made sure she had plenty of fresh water, cleared up in a few days. My post was also bloody discharge under goat info. Hope this helps. Robin

    Was it a thick red blood, same as after kidding? It even looks a little brown sometimes.

    Yes it was dark red almost brown in color, and she began squating to pee, like she was pushing. She is fine now, it cleared up in a couple of days.
