    I was just out in my pasture when I noticed that one of my does had bulging sides. Not just one side, but both. In all honesty, she looked pregnant. I don't think she could've gotten in with the boys, although we had a few break-ins a few weeks ago. She wouldn't be that huge by now, would she? I'm new to goats, and want to make sure everything is ok.

    She might be bloating, if so you'll have to massage her gut and give her some baking soda to get her to burp.

    She also could just have a good rumen going.

    How long has she been on pasture?
