    We got Nelly 5 days ago and the previous owner told us she was preggers but she is huge and now she seems to be shaking what could that mean?

    So her abdominal ligaments are probably gone. It happens. Nothing to worry about. But is she eating and do you have a temp on her?

    when you say shaking what do you mean by that? is she literally shivering or just quaking?

    a normal temp is 101-103

    what is your temperature outside? did you have a recent drop in temperature? does she have a winter coat?

    is she eating, and drinking?

    Yep the first thing you need to know is her temp. That will tell us a lot.

    Oh I understand.

    What I tell my 4H kids. If they have a goat that is not acting right at all, first thing they need to do is get a temp. That way we can decide what to do from there. Temp low the goat is treated different the a temp high.

    when you say shaking what do you mean by that? is she literally shivering or just quaking? She only shakes when she is standing still and not a hard shake and it has no kind of pattern

    a normal temp is 101-103

    what is your temperature outside? did you have a recent drop in temperature? does she have a winter coat? No matter of fact it was in the teens here last week and today in the 40. yes she has a winter coat

    is she eating, and drinking? yes she appears to be fine her temp is fine everything except the shaking
