I had taken in some not so friendly la mancha about a year ago, they were about 6 month old. Most have came around, one of the does never really fully came around. I can pet her a bit at times. I bred her this year and she had a little buckling yesterday. Well when I came to check on him she wasnt having anything to do with him, had to look at back ends just to find out whos kid he was [have four does left to kid] Anyways... found out it was her, and he didnt look like hed nursed though she did clean him off. She seems to liking being a mom but doesnt let him nurse, everytime he tries he gets kicked away. We tried holding her and letting the kid nurse and she fights us hard. Cant milk her out and feed the kid... she wont let us. I hate to take the kid away because she seems to "like" him but just not know she needs to feed him and were to feed him. We seperated tehem from the herd and they seem nicely bonded now, but still she wont let him eat. Well today I physically held her down and let him drink because I knew he needed too. I mean I laid on her and held her down... it was the only way. I didnt actually put my weight on her but I dont really like doing it. I could bottle feed him but I kind of wanna kteach her to feed him... just not at the expense of his life. Tying her doesnt work, she freaks. Ive noticed she hates her udder being touched so Ive been handling it to get her used to it. But what should i do about her buckling? Should I go as far as to hold her down? Or should I just bottle feed him another does milk? I have a few does that just weaned kids. But if I do that wont the mom not take him in anymore?
