I have a ff that is 4 years old. She is overdue by 7 days. We know for sure when she was bred. She has been having some mucus coming out of her vagina and when she stands up sometimes I can see something reddish coming from her opening but then it goes right back in. She has been laying down more than usual today but I have not seen her in actual labor, i.e. no pushing , grunting etc. It is 2:30 on a Sunday. Should I call the vets after hours clinic? I hate to have a vet come in on their day off and I hate to spend the $ if this is all normal. Last year was our first with pregnant goats and all went fine so I know what labor is supposed to look like in a goat and this just seems off. I did call the vet on Friday and they said to call them back on Monday if there are no babies yet. Should I call the vet now? I don't know what was coming in ans out of her, was it a uterine prolapse, the baby? She lost her ligaments a few days ago and has pretty good size udders.
Any advice would be much appreciated

The thing coming out seems like a prolapse, or maybe her vulva was very open. Was the buck in with her at all after you witnessed the breeding?

You are probably seeing some vaginal wall. It really is hard to tell you to definitely call the vet or not to call. We aren't looking at your goat. It is stuff like this that you really need to see in person. If she truly isn't in distress, then I would probably wait until Monday to call the vet. But then again, I'm not physically looking at her.
