Default HELP My new goat has stringy discharge

I need help. I just bought a goat at a sale about one month ago and it looks young and doesnt look pregnant to me? I dont even know what breed it is. Its marked like and oberhasli but smaller than my nigerians. I went to check on them and one has a long string hanging out that appears creamy most the way down and possibly blood at the end? Is this a heat? or is she pregnant and I just cant tell. Her udder hasnt seemed to change at all? I am terrible about feeling for movement because I dont know the difference between stomach movements and a kick. Any suggestions or ideas? Is there anything other than pregnancy that would cause this? thank you Sorry I dont know how to post this anywhere else.

I am assuming it is coming from her vulva right?
Because if it is coming from her bum...it would be tapes...

Does she have a bad odor coming from her vulva?

Can you get pooch pics.. tail up....an udder shot.. also side shot of her rear area... as close and clear as you can get?

Is she acting normal?

It could be a heat, when my youngest doe had her first heat at 5 months old, she had a snot like string that was long and sticky. That was the first and last time I'd seen her have it.

A pic of the area under her tail would help determine if she is in fact preggy, does have definate changes to their "pooch" during pregnancy.

Thank you so much for replying. It is coming from her vulva, and I thought of the possibility of heat but do they go through heat in the spring? She is abnormally friendly I think but isnt flagging or anything like that. I will be back with pictures soon but I need to charge up the camera.

Sorry no picutres yet but I have been watching her most of the day. She now has blood on her tail. Her vulva seems to be swollen. she also seems to stretch alot and occasionally itches her side but no pawing or anything like that she doesnt appear to be in any pain. I will be going out now to get pictures.

She sounds pregnant, but I've never had one have blood before kidding.

That is bizarre... she looks really poofy in the vulva ...as if she is preggo....
She also looks posty.... her belly isn't that barreled..........Let's see what others think...

To me that looks like she aborted not very long ago...possibly even at the sale yard. And her body is cleaning out her system like a doe would do after she kids. Sometimes you'll see that bloody discharge off and on for a week or two after kidding.
