Leg Terrestrial animal Snout Grass Livestock

Working animal Grass Dog breed Terrestrial animal Snout


She has been on fresh, wet pasture. Usually her belly isn’t this big after she’s been out on grass. Acting totally fine/normal otherwise.
Both sides of her belly are soft, but it feels like there are large uneven lumps, especially on the right side (the photos don’t show it very well but it definitely felt weird). Her left side also rises and sinks (as seen in the second photo)
The other goat out with her has a normal belly & appetite.

Is she on new pasture? Or anything else different then normal on what she is eating? She just looks super full to me, if it’s not hard she’s not in danger with bloat. But if this isn’t her normal I would probably just play it safe and pull her out of the pasture until it goes down or until tomorrow.
If it’s new to her pasture, limit her time and slowly increase.

No, she’s been on this pasture for the past 3 months, I’ve just never seen a belly like this so I wasn’t sure. With the lumps and sunken side. I’d say the only new thing is that we’ve recently had a downpour of heavy rain.
