We are in shock, here. The girls were milking and one of the milkers ran out of the main pen, the girl who milked them said that she was acting really feisty and fought her to push by and get up on the stand. They said that she jumped up, tried to reach over and steal the grain next to her, was scolded, had the stanchion closed as she started eating and she immediately went down. They ripped open the neck pc and lifted her up and she was on her feet for a few seconds then shook all over and went down like a flash. We tried epi (just in case of an odd allergic reaction), as well as our best at a goat heimlich maneuver as it really seemed to fit with some kind of choking. We held her with her neck/head down, did finger sweeps, even closed off her mouth and did CPR via her nose...chest massage, nothing. She went from feisty and full of zip to dead within, well basically, seconds. Of course most of the children just stood around in shock while Katie and my husband and the older few children worked like fiends trying everything that we could think of to get this goat back to life. I just dont get it. We have gone almost 4 years without a single doe lost to death. Then 2 in less than 24 hours. I have to tell you I am really freaked out, afraid to leave the barn, afraid to go to sleep. What is going on here?! I mean I really believe that God is in control, but I am really shocked and stunned and anxious.
