  1. Kidding Koral
    Recently I noticed that my Nubian doe, Maddie Lynn, has clear fluid in her teats. She's three years old and she's never had a kid or been bred.

    I have a Lamancha that I am trying to milk. Her teats are small and I have big hands. Lamanchas that I have seen in videos seem to have rather large teats. Is it perhaps because this is her first kid and maybe next pregnancy they might be bigger? Thanks, Roy

    Hello all, I'm new to this forum, but my mother was a member 10 years ago when the both of use were raising Boer goats together. My mom has since passed and I'm getting back in to goats. I still consider myself a newbie. I have a nubian mama and her two 2 month old babes. I'm not milking her...
