    Okay, Finale had stillborn twins a week or so ago, and she's got a TINY little udder, but it's got milk, I was just curious as to if she would let me milk her and she seemed to ENJOY the milking! :shocked: Surprised me. So I'm guessing it's been uncomfortable.

    Now do I milk her or should I let her dry up?

    If you have use for the milk, then yes by all means, milk her. If you don't then dry her off.

    Thats great that she enjoyed you milking her, not too often you get a doe like that.

    So you don't think it would stress her body out more after aborting the twins? That's what I'm most concerned about. Course I could also ask the vet what he thinks Thursday.
