Hey everyone, I haven't really been around the goats for the past 2 days. Tonight they broke out of the pen through the creek - it's dried up and technically we aren't supposed to have anything 'permanent' across it, but I fixed their rear ends this time.... So anyway, I noticed one of my does looks sore on the backend, and my kids had mentioned she had something on her butt <they were here with her all day and were out with her earlier>. Her vulva looks a bit swollen, and she doesn't want anyone to touch her backend. I usually never EVER have a problem, heck I usually grab her tall and wag it gently/playfully and she never moves, almost as if she likes it! But now you touch her tail and she's trying to get away from you - and her tail looks sunken in a bit around the lig area, and she'll keep her tail down if you get around her to mess with looking at that area. Think the buck bred her? I'm a bit concerned, I think he could be coming into rut, he's been chasing my other 2 non preggo's. And today he was really chasing the bucklings, which he never does. We 'thought' this doe could already be pregnant - she was hand bred, BUT, she'd be almost 2 months and shows no real signs. We've had no issued up to this point, but if I have to I will seperate the buck, he'll be leaving in a month, and I hate to do that to him, but I want my girls to be happy and not run down. I know it's getting to be that time of year... Anyway, you think he bred her and made her really sore? He's a 180lb boer buck, and she's a tall, but petite boer/percentage doe - she's slender, healthy but slender, possibly around 80lbs or so?
