I went to milk 2 goats for a friend out of town. One of her kinders has like a small balloon at the end if both teats... I'm new to goats, and I'm milking 2 of my kinders but I haven't seen anything like it... Is this normal? It's weird I have to wait for the "balloon" to fill before I can get anymore milk out...

She has what could possibly be blown teats, it's where the sphincter at the top is no longer as tight as it should be, thus allowing the teat to be like a balloon.

It could also be the way she is made, I've milked a nubian doe years ago who had these large handful sized teats but at the bottoms looked like elongated marbles, never saw a doe like her before that.
