    Ella kidded last Thursday and today when i went out there there was bloody stuff on her tail and private parts had some dry blood on it. Should i be worried? She seems fine- eating - temperature is fine.

    yes this is normal -- it isnt the afterbirth its just her cleaning out. this can happen off and on for 2 weeks

    Totally normal. You'll see discharge on and off like that for the next 3-6 weeks. As long as it's either a rusty color or a clearish streaked mess she's fine, you do not want to see a yellow or greenish discharge as that would indicate infection.
