    Cleo looks like she is going to start going into labor soon. I am very worried about the blood. Is this normal? I am freaked out.

    She is not acting like she is in pain (other than minor contractions) and she is eating.

    Did you check for any cuts ... to make sure... she didn't cut it on something?

    I saw it come out of her. She has settled down and there is no more blood. I was very worried. I hope her labor is progressing and she and her kids are ok.

    For what it is worth, in mares, a small amount of blood from the vulva during late gestation is usually caused by a vaginal vericose vein that is leaking due to pressure in the area. In a mare it is not serious and does not generally interfer with delivery. Not entirely sure if that would apply to goats as well but it would make sense. :)
