    I picked up a new doe and her doeling, who is about 6 weeks old, on Sunday. They were both sweet and happy and healthy, only about a 20 minute ride home so not super stressful. Late in the day Sunday I noticed mama had clumpy poop, so I gave her probios because that's what always helps my...

    Hey everyone, sorry is this is in the wrong place, but I just got my first buck and I’m pretty sure he’s already bred one of my does but I’m not sure. What does a successful breeding look like? On both the female and male parts? They were acting very interested in each other through the fence...

    Hi Everyone: I have a quick question for all of the boer breeders. This is our first time using a CIDR to breed. I am going to be ultrasounding a doe I bred last month. She went to be with the buck. We had put in a CIDR and took it out the day we took her. She went into heat and the owner of...

    I’m trying to get two of my does bred for spring kidding, and this is my first time trying to really plan things out (previously I just had my buck sharing a pasture with my two does, and when breeding season rolled around they got bred, and then I had to guess when they might kid and move them...

    I'm in a bit of a tricky situation. For starters, I've never bred my goats before and one of them is having some issues. She is a 2.5 year old alpine that has never had kids or been with a buck up until now. About a year ago, I noticed an udder started to form and eventually she started to act...

    This whole year has been complete goat fiasco for me which is only my second year owning Nigerian Dwarfs. I bred one doe who had a positive pregnancy test and then she either had a cloudburst according to a vet via phone, or was never pregnant. I didn't breed another doe and one day realize she...

    Hi I hope you are all well. I bred this doe on 8 July 2020 and it was the first time for her. Now almost 2.5 months passed and she never looks into heat and her belly also look tight so we were all looking forward for the kids in December. But from today morning the doe is bleating so much that...

    So on July 13th my doe I'm planning to breed this season started showing signs of heat. Lots of tail flagging, mounting the little wether, some puffiness around her vulva. So we took her to the farm we received her from for a driveway date with a buck, which appeared to go...ahem...very well...

    Sadie is ALWAYS panting. She lays in the shade a lot, but she is still relatively young, at 3 years old. I plan on shearing her sometime soon, just haven't gotten around to it yet. I got her in December, and she would still pant on the warmer days of winter. The times when she mostly pants is...

    Hi everyone, I am looking for some treatment advice with a 1 1/2 year old Nubian doe. I acquired her from some friends and she had never been around a buck (just 2 other does). She has been coming in heat like clock work since August of 2019. She has been with 2 different very fertile bucks a...

    I got a new Nigerian Drwarf doe a week ago who was bred, or was supposed to be. We waited 3 and a half weeks after she was covered to make sure she didn't go into heat again. All seemed well so we brought her home. Four days later (3 days ago), on her 30 days pregnant mark, she started having...

    I have 3 nigerian dwarf goats who are just over 6 weeks today. As the California weather begins to turn into summer, I'm curious how goats fare in the heat? Do they need anything special to help handle the summer heat? They have plenty of shaded areas in their pen..is that enough?

    This is my 3 yr old ND doe. It’s been around 3 wks since her last heat and she was not bred. She is not eating and being very affectionate. Not much flagging as i can see but he other signs are there.

    my friend has a Pygmy goat that has never been exposed to a buck and only one side of her udder is filling. She says it is soft and warm. I told her to heat compress it and I told her that sometimes when a goat is in heat, their udder will sometimes fill up some, but I am stumped on this one...

    I'm new to this site as far as officially being a member. Although I've read advice given on here for a long time! It's been so valuable. My little Oliver, who is almost 7 months old, began to get a rash on his belly near his groin a few weeks back. We kept it clean and it appeared to be...

    I bred her on 8/11. She was for sure in heat, stood for breeding and loved the buck attention (among other heat behaviors), and accepted breeding 3 times in the same day. Her pregnancy tests just came in and boom... not pregnant. I have to induce heat asap in order to show her. She is an animal...

    Hey y'all, has anyone ever used just a CIDR to bring a doe into heat? Not for AI, just for a live breeding. I would really love to hear how it worked out, and any things that I would need to watch for, ect. :) Thanks!

    Hello, I have an eight year old Nigerian dwarf doe that I've had no problem breeding in the past. This past year she was acting Bucky and likely short cycling along with another doe in our herd. (I didn't think much of it and didn't track their heats as we weren't breeding. I regret this...

    Hey yall, as of yesterday I am the proud owner of 2 beautiful nanny Pygmy goats! My first goat(s) ever, and I am super excited! :fireworks: They are twin sisters, 6 months old, and a little skiddish at the moment (but they are warming up to me thanks to handfuls of sweet feed). Thus far they...
