Yesterday we rescued a pregnant doe- spanish and boer cross. Today she had twins. She is in amazingly good shape considering the conditions she was in. The twins were healthy and beautiful, but a little weak. We have only had one birth so far on our farm and he hit the ground looking like a mac truck. So, this is my only comparisson. Because they were weak, we had to help out with the first nursing. I noticed some clear strings in the colostrom. What are those? I have read up on mastistis and the doe does not have any other symptoms. The colostrom is very thick, but not lumpy or cottage cheese looking. The babies are now nursing on their own and look so much stronger. Should I be concerned about the clear strings? The strings are very short. They did settle to the bottom of the jar I milked into leaving beautiful creamy colostrom at the top. Any insight into what these are would be greatly appreciated.
