    My Nubian doeling (who has got to be the clumsiest thing to ever exist and will be the death of me) just jumped into her water bucket, cast first. It’s soaking wet and my father refuses to address it because there’s a week left of her cast being on and he doesn’t want to spend the money to fix...
  2. Goat Frenzy
    After what has felt like FOREVER I have finally gotten myself a doeling with the lines I’ve been looking for. Now while she won’t be here until July, I still can’t wait to post this! she is out of Lone Rock Nigerians in Alberta, Canada. They have some lovely goats. This doeling in particular...

    Hey everyone. So... eventful night. Our Nubian doeling broke her leg, so we rushed her to the vet and he sedated her to put a cast on. No clue why, I had no say in it. But now it’s been an hour and she still hasn’t waken up completely, and the vet said it would take 20 mins. I’m really worried...
  4. Goat Conformation
    Just curious about everyone’s thoughts on this doeling. Is it too early to tell conformation on a three week old? Am I getting too ahead of myself? 😂 so far she’s looking nice to me, hard to get a picture of her rear since she doesn’t want to stand still. And here I thought a baby would be...
  5. Birth Announcements
    So last night, during a huge storm, a doeling was born! The breeder I’ve been working with was kind enough to let us know first, so of course we had to take her. We snatched her up immediately and plan to bottle feed in a couple weeks! It’ll be our first time bottle feeding but I’m prepared...

    I was doing chores yesterday morning when I noticed one of my dwellings had a swollen face, I tossed her in a spectate pen for a few hours to see if maybe she had just popped her jaw out, however when I got back she has built up quite a bit of foam around her mouth/nose, I gave her a unit of...

    So this morning I went out to check the girls and noticed that one of my younger ones had something wrong with her eye. She kept it closed and when she opened it, I noticed a bit of swelling. Thankfully I think I’ve caught it early. I used some eye drops to flush it out and then put a little eye...
  8. Goat Management
    I have 4 goats, a wether, a buck, a doe and a doeling. The wether and doeling (brother and sister), they were sold together and very attached! They freak out when they're not together. The wether Resin even mounts his sister Rosie all the time. I didn't think my buck would do it since he never...

    Hello all! I just picked up my second goat on Saturday, and I worry that I may have chosen the wrong breeder. Betty (the doeling) is not only very skittish, but seems to have a twitch. Every now and then she’ll stomp her left leg, and there’s no real reason to it. She had been lying down and...
  10. Kidding Koral
    Hello! We had to pull a kid Monday night because it came head first with no feet. Tuesday she was able to drink from mom and had lots of energy. Wednesday she had some messy poop we had to clean off her and now it is Thursday she is low energy, doesn’t get excited like her sister to eat and is...

    This afternoon, I noticed one of my little young doelings is bloated and somewhat inflated. She is only 3 weeks old.. She was laying down a lot, but when standing up, she had this slouched/depressed posture. I have syringed fed her a water/baking soda mixture and gave 15cc's of pepto bismol...
  12. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hello! I am going to be a new goat mom this spring, and would love some tips on how to raise the kids. I'll be getting a little wether and doeling, both are pygmy fainting crosses. I know they have to eat separate feed from my research so far, but I'm finding it difficult to find information on...
  13. Beginners Goat Raising
    I'm new to ND goats and inherited 2 quite by accident. They're adorable and about 12 weeks old. They were very skinny when we got them about 2 weeks ago. We took them to the vet who just gave them a quick look over and suggested we come back since they were terrified of even us. They clearly had...

    Hi, I’m new here and have a huge problem. So my 1.5 Month old baby goat is doing terribly, she didn’t receive any colostrum from when she was born because she was a bit premature and her mother barely had any milk. I’ve been bottle feeding her ever since. At first she was fine then she got a...

    This morning I found one of my doelings dead. Her eyelids, super pale, no color, whatsoever. I dewormed my herd because they all seemed to have slightly low FAMANCHA score. I dewormed with cydectin, safeguard, and I did a 5 day Corid treatment. They all seem to be doing well, but I still...

    So last night I heard one of my pygmy goats crying like she was in pain. I run outside to check on her, and she is just standing there crying. She is very small so I sat her on my lap. She jumped off my lap, walked a few step, stumbled, fell over, and that was it. She was gone. It all took less...

    So here is my dilemma: My friend has this incredibly sweet Boer doeling which will be eight weeks old on the 20th. My friend tried to disbud this kid with acid (which didn't work) and so now this goat has little horns poking through. I plan to bring this goat to my place in a week or two, but...

    I have a 3 week old doeling who doesn’t have as much hair on her face as her sister and her face is white. Even though there is plenty of shade for them, the uv index here is really high and her face got sunburnt. Is there a sunscreen I can use on goats? Maybe one that is made for horses? I...

    Aloha Everyone! Does anyone have any ideas WHY a 1-Year Old Doeling would have ONE Swollen Teat?? (photo attached): This is my Neighbor’s Doeling and I absolutely know that this Doeling has Never Kidded or Ever even been on the same property as a Buck; so I Know she is NOT Pregnant... I have...
