I noticed yesterday that Bella my one and a half year old doe has a hard lump the size of a grape over the left side of her ribcage. She is feeling fine, acting completely normal. It is very hard and immovable. She has not had a vaccination since I got her last April. I did some research and found a few threads on here from people with similar issues. I figure CL isn't a concern because it isn't anywhere near her neck or a lymph node. Bone calcification was a hypothesis, broken rib was another idea. I am not financially inclined to get a vet involved as it is causing her no discomfort. I figure I'll just keep an eye on it. I am just looking to see if anyone has any personal experience or ideas?

It's right where I'm touching her. (And of course she's licking me)

Since it doesn't bother her,, not in a typical CL locations..I would just keep watch. She may have bumped it real hard..caused a lump..maybe a sticker ready to fester? So many things Goats can do to make us scratch put head lol. Let us know if there are any changes.

I love how she kisses you

Did you vaccinate her there?
She has not had any injections since I got her early last year.

Thanks for confirming my opinion. I figure as long as it's not causing her any pain and nobody else has any similar bumps it's nothing to fret about. I will definitely keep you updated.

Oh yes I'd love it too if she ever stopped giving kisses. :rolleyes: It's really her saying, "You are not petting me anywhere near enough right now.":lolgoat:
