    Update... disappointing news.
    We took her to the vet today and she has a wall about an inch inside her vagina. Vet said she can’t put her finger any further in. Said we could take her to OSU for a $1500 scan and surgical intervention. Not going to happen.
    So now I have to figure out what to do with her. She is the most expensive goat in my property. I paid $1700 for her in February. I’m very upset and heartbroken about this.

    Oh no, that is terrible news. Is she a freemartin or has she kidded in the past? If she is a freemartin maybe the breeder will refund your money and take her back.

    I also have one whom I’ve had for a year and has had irregular heats. Thought for sure she was pregnant but it was a false pregnancy. Hoping she’s bred now as she’s my nicest doe, but I doubt it. Going to pull blood Thursday to send in to check.

    She has never kidded before but I just heard back from the breeder and she’s going to take her back and let me pick out another one. That a big relief.

    That’s great she’s going to take her back! It’s still tough to lose that time and effort, but at least she’s standing behind her goats.
