Varonica is a Ff, 3 days post kidding. She wont let me touch her, but she still lets the babies nurse. Am I supposed to tie her down to put udder balm on and milk her? Through all the bleating, kicking and wild saucer-like eyes? This is my first go-round with goats.

if she is lettting the kids nurse and she is even on both sides. i would let it go another day or so. once her milk comes in you have plenty of time to catch her and milk her or bag balm her. my point is if she is letting the kids nurse she isnt all that sore. was this doe ever handled before? if not she will need tlc and lots of treats. we've had a couple of bucking broncos before some get used to it some dont.
