    Hi everyone.

    Our pygmy had her first kid today.
    A little buck, 3 1/2 pounds.

    The birth wasnt textbook. After 30 minutes of intense pushing and only one leg and a nose showing with no advancement, I figured something must be hung up...and yup, it was.
    The kid had one front leg laying all the way across its chest, from one side over to the other side and the kid got stuck.
    I finally went in, found the crooked arm, straightened it and pop....kid slid out nicely with one good push.

    Now I want to get her PenG into mom.
    What would the dose be for a 60 pound pygmy?

    Should I do the Vit B shot too?

    Thanks you very much.

    I give 1cc SQ - as that is what my vet has me do for my pygmy and nigerians.

    Sorry, but I am not sure about the Vit B

    Pennicillin G - 1cc per 25lbs (must be given for 5 consecutive days. Miss a day and you have to start over) Can be given IM or SQ

    Thank you so much!!

    This was our first ever kidding.
    Of course our goat didnt read the birthing manuals. LOL
    She didnt follow any averages at all.
    Ligs gone for over 24 hours.
    Starting pushing periodically at 9:30 AM.
    Finally birthed with help at 12:45PM.

    And baby buckling was up in 15 minutes, suckling in 30 minutes!
    For 3 hours that buckling bounced around before he finally took a nap with mom.

    Heres pics.

    Congrats on the lil' guy! He sure is a cutie. This isn't the young doe you were worried about a few weeks ago, how is she doing? The doseage that Rockytopsis gave is the same that I use for my girls, though I do have 1 that is at least 75 lbs. now! Preggy and a glutton!

    No, this mom is 3-4 yrs old. She was bred to a naturally polled, large, 3 yr old pygmy. This little guy looks like his dad too. The buckling has a complete belly band, dads is almost complete.
    I wanted this girl bred before her years got to high for FF.
    And she did so good. I am proud of her.

    The young girl is Badoo. The goat that always got loose and went to her pen was a yearling at the time and our smallest goat. Our biggest trouble maker too. LOL, he even has devil horns that grow straight up!

    Oh and she is doing fine. I swear she has 2 in there. She is easy to feel for kids and I find hooves below and in the side and its seems like more than 4.

    Glad to hear that the younger one is fine, she should be going soon too! That new boy is handsome, I had a doeling born last March with a partial band and white toes on her foot...have no clue where she came from cause her dad is as black as night and her mom medium carmel! I do hope your young one has twins, will be easier on her with 2 small instead of 1 big. Good luck and congratulations!

    congratulations - rockytopsis dosage and directions are what I use too.

    The birth sounded pretty normal to me - well at least all the ones I have witnessed - I always happen to see the ones that take forever and need assisting. THe ones that go smooth and no issues I never see, they must do it in hiding.

    He sure is a cutie little fellow
