And then there was this fiasco: https://www.thegoatspot.net/threads/a-whole-month-left-to-go.212519/ Things did not turn out so well for Nubbin. She ended up with a uterine infection (I absolutely should have done a uterine flush but I had never done one before and I was so tired by the end of this ordeal that my mind wasn't on the right track I guess). She was doing poorly so the owner took her to the vet who confirmed uterine infection and a tear. I'm not sure if it was a uterine tear or a cervical tear. Either way, I'm not happy that this happened. Nubbin was so full of kids I'm actually not surprised that she tore. I did my best to be as gentle as possible, but she was so full of kids it's possible that she even tore herself when contractions started. She was like a balloon full to bursting and I doubt her uterus had one bit of elasticity left. No doe should have to deliver 4 full-sized kids! Usually when they have quads the kids are smaller. These four were the size of regular twins. I saw Nubbin in August and she still looked awful. She was very thin and her coat was dull and falling out in patches. She's only seven years old but she looked ancient. Her owner was supplementing her with all kinds of goodies, but Nubbin's appetite was poor. I haven't heard from the owner since then so I'm hoping Nubbin eventually took a turn for the better. The four kids, on the other hand, were sleek, fat, gorgeous weanlings when I saw them. I'm so happy that we didn't lose the entire crew in that kidding. As bad as it turned out, it could have been much, much worse.
