What is normal for a goats body temperature? Today was a really nice day out and if you were doing a lot you could get to sweating a little bit, but not much at all and it was not a hot day by any means. Mysti my 2 year old doe that freshened 2-6-11 was panting. So I just chalked it up to her being black and standing in the sun or something. This evening after milking we put her back in the pasture and she was panting again, it's cooled off and getting dark out so I just felt like this was off. I took her temp and it's 104.7 is this high? or acceptable?
