    Hello and thanks in advance, I have a first Freshner that is pregnant, her utter is growing by the day and I noticed that for the last few days she been discharging some yellowish mucus, I can still feel the ligaments, she is very swollen today and some more discharge I am over worrying? my girl Lola had twins a couple of days ago, but I had bought my two older girls from another homestead and they had kidded before, so I am somewhat NEW to FF.. is this dischage normal? I noticed it on Lola the day she kidded. But Winter is been doing this for a few days now... below is some pictures of the day I shaved her ...

    They can start losing their mucus plug a month out from kidding. My guess is that is what you are seeing.

    With my does..that is normal. Usually the birthing goo is an amber color. Sounds like you are doing really well with your new girls. You are keeping a close eye on them ! :goodjob:

    What breed of dog do you show? Are you going to show goats too?
    Ive only been in goats for about 5 years. I still feel new at it. But there are some great teachers here on TGS. Many of them have had goats for 15 + years. I have learned so much and feel very fortunate to have Goat friends all over the world. So glad you are here.
