    Poor Jen is off to the vet getting a C-section on her as we speak. I went over and tried to help, but something is up.

    Well not sure what the good/bad news is here. Last night at midnight I assisted in an emergency c-section to save Jasmine and her kid (no vet tech was available). We thought the kid had passed and just wanted to save Jasmine. When he opened her up much to both of our surprises she was alive and kicking. He had to cut twice to get her out. She had lots of fluid in her lungs but is doing well. Jasmine was put back together and though things were touch and go she pulled through and came home with me around 2. Jasmine has earned the spot of hay eater in our miniherd and will never be bred again. The doe kid however has the dreaded pea sized growth on her vulva. I will post pictures and tell me what you think. The doe is easily the size of both the kids we had last week put together. She is huge and a black/dark brown. Pictures in the next few hours. I am exhausted both physically, financially and emotionally. Two hard births in two weeks! Agh! :sigh:

    Oh my gosh, thats awful.... I can't even believe it!

    Looking forward to pictures.....Poor Jasmine and poor you :(

    Did the vet say she would never be able to be bred again? I cant even believed that happened, she had two very easy kiddings before....

    I'm sooo sorry this has happened to you. This is not the norm for goat births, to have had two difficult births in a row is horrible luck. None of this is your fault. Kudos to you for getting her to the vet in time. I hope things go smoothly for you from here on out. :hug:

    Well the silver lining is that Addie and Ashley were great supporters in my goat midwifery! Loading photos now. Jasmine did sit up and I was able to get the kid to latch on to one side easily. I did also syringe her some of Wildflower's milk but really wanted her to have the colostrum from Jasmine.
