Awe Im so sorry you lost her..she was beautiful.....She may have got bashed hard enough to twist her gut...Ive not seen one pop out like that but its a possability..

Its best not to keep the buck with any doe unless you want them to breed, 4 months is old enough to come in heat and at 7 months old he is excitable and could even try to breed the pregnant doe..which at the very least is stresful...but if the mama goat is bashing the little ones, thats not safe either., large areas she can get away from her but in small areas like a closed in shelter, she cant get away..I would seperate them at night, even if the 4 month old has to sleep in a large dog kennel...until she is big enough or has bonded with the other doe at least...But the Buck needs his won pen for day and night...
best wishes
