I am new to raising goats and this is our 1st year kidding, etc. We have a mini Nubian that should be kidding within the next 3 weeks sometime. Yesterday evening she started having really bad runs. She is only eating alfalfa hay and some pasture grass in our kidding yard. I am not sure what to do. Please any advice would be great.

If it is green, like the Alfalfa, it may be too much Alfalfa, to really fresh cut Alfalfa. It could also be too lush of pasture, you can give her less time out for a while, then gradually increase.
Try, giving a bit less Alfalfa and just add a bit of oat hay or something equivalent, just a little bit.

You can give her Pepto , try 12cc every 4 to 6 hours

Getting a fecal in case she has worms or cocci ,would be OK to do as well. Unless you want to try the feed decrease first.
