    My pygmy doe has white "goo" coming out the "back end". Once this happens....how much longer will it be before she kids???? She came from a petting zoo, so I do not know how old she is or ANY of her history....

    Is this the same doe you had posted about wether or not to breed her with a nigi buck?
    Most times my girls have the thick white discharge from a week to 2 weeks before they kid....if she has other signs such as a "stream" of clear to whitish pink mucous coming from her and her ligaments have softened then she is within a few hours of kidding. Reminder...the ligaments are on either side of her tail and will feel like a pencil...until she is ready to give birth...then the whole area goes mushy.

    Yes, this is the same doe. I think that by her size and how far along she is, there is no way that she is bred to the boer buck. She is big, but not abnormally big, like she would be if the boer got to her.

    The white discharge can happen anywhere from a day to a month before a doe kids. I have some does that will have it for a month, and others will only have it a couple hours before they kid.

    Then this doe would be Oreo??? You had mentioned in a previous post about her being in with a Boer and a ND buck...did you take her to the vet Monday? If you made it there what did he/she have to say? Most times w/ a sonogram they can "age" a pregnancy. I do hope that it was the nigi that bred her, and most agreed on the other post that she was looking to be 2-3 months along so that would have put her due at the earliest around Jan 6th and the latest Feb 6. If you can, it may be helpful to post a pic or 2 to get an idea or basic estimate of how far along she is. I know what it's like to have a "surprise" kidding...Tilly's first freshening with Hank was supposed to be in March...he did the deed thru the fence without my knowledge and she kidded in mid February!

    I will get pics as soon as I can. Everything is difficult because I am now in a wheelchair. My horse threw me and I dislocated my hip BAD, so I was taken to the hospital by ambulance. It was the most painful experience of my life! And on top of all that, my great-grandfather passed away, So needless to say, no, I have not got her to the vet.

    Thank you! I hope she holds out, also, unless she can have a safe birth without complications!

    Ouch indeed- had that happen a couple of years ago at the age of 57.
    You have had more than your share of problems - get better fast.

    She is still the same, It has been cold and rainy here all day and rain and wheelchairs do not mix, but I had my mom go check on her, she said she is great!

    well that is good news. boy and I was worried about having to work, I need to count my blessings. A wheelchair must be so frustrating.

    puts it all in prospective.

    Yes, it is very frustrating. Especially when I go to the barn and hit a rut and my wheels just start spinning, but I must say, it is a very funny sight, Haha!

    I am sorry about your accident, my friend was thrown from her horse and air-evacuated (sp?) she got amnesia and has been severly depressed since. I too hope that she holds out until you are feeling better!
