    Is what’s coming out of her a sign of something?

    Yes that looks like maybe the placenta coming. Don't pull it. Just let her deliver it at her pace

    how long has it been since the buckling? and is she contracting? You would see the placenta unless she ate it - which mine never do. She looks to me like she has another kid in there and her lady parts look still very swollen. Hope there is no problem arising and that it is really just one & all is fine. Goats never cease to surprise me.

    Kick around the hay and dirt to see if you find it..it will be like a blob.

    Wendy asked a great question. Is she contracting or pushing?

    If you do not have iodine, trim just the tip of the umbilical cord ( don't make it too short) with scissors dipped in rubbing alcohol. Then carefully dip the cord in alcohol. If the baby is a boy, don't get alcohol on his little boy part.
    The alcohol will dry the cord and prevent germs from traveling up it into the belly.

    Hows mama doing? Caring for baby? Eating and drinking, peeing and pooping berries? Relaxed and chews her cud? Tail looks relaxed. Did you find a placenta? Hows baby doing?

    She is caring for baby; and she’s eating. I haven’t seen her drink any water though. Her poop is clumpy and she’s peeing. To me she’s acting a bit off. Maybe kinda sluggish or slow? I don’t know.

    The way her face and ears look doesn’t seem right to me. Is it just me or could something be wrong?

    A drop of bloody mucus stuff just dropped. Is that normal after it being several hours after giving birth?

    Bloody discharge is normal for several days. Give her a B Complex shot and probiotics.

    Get a temp on her in case, if high, she has uterine infection.
