    I am kind of at a loss. I have a 4 year old goat, Dreamy who I was sure was bred - is apparently not. Today when we went out to do chores, she was in heat. I took her over to Nick again, who was more than eager to service her again - but I am starting to get worried. This is my doe that aborted last winter right after we moved. (I figure from the stress of moving.) She was in heat on Nov. 3 and Nick "serviced" her about 4 or 5 times over a 2 day period. She had also been in heat on (about) Oct. 11 and also put in with Nick. I know it isn't Nick since he has settled all the other does he has been put with this season. I am starting to think there is something wrong with her. I don't know if I am worrying too much - I just hate to miss another year of milk production and babies from her. What do you all think?

    Maybe read that topic called Cystorellin. Maybe that would help.

    :biggrin Ok, I'm dying to know what the vet told you and if you got a treatment.

    I am very disappointed in the vet! Her recommendation was to give her a 3 day course of Nuflur. That is it. I put a call into an older lady who lives way north of me, who raised dairy goats for years and see what she says. I just don't want to lose another year of production from her.
