Last night, I sat in the barn watching the goats playing for about an hour. Pixie was doing great, completely normal. Day 145 of pregnancy would be Saturday for her. I noticed a tiny trickle of fluid from her rear but thought it was normal for this part of her pregnancy. Today, I got home from work to find Pixie barely able to moan to me. She had a big mass of red stuff hanging out of her rear that was definately not a kid. I put on a glove to touch it just in case it was an abnormal kid but didn't feel any solid bones & it didn't resemble a kid at all. It had a bunch of funky bumps on it & I had no idea what it was. I called the vet & he told me to bring her in asap. I drove the 30 miles there as quickly as I could but Pixie passed away on the way there We got her up on the examination table and I found out that she had turned her uterus inside out & expelled it. So that is what I had seen Then the vet said she must have expelled the kids within the past 2 days---I had checked everywhere quickly before I left home just in case there were kids but didn't see anything. Well, I got home & thoroughly searched again to find 2 kids frozen solid in the hay. I guess I can only learn from my mistakes, I could have maybe saved the kids at least if I was watching closer. The one was curled up like it had been probably been alive & the other still had part of the amniotic sac on it. I checked the girls udders last night but Pixie's didn't seem completely expanded yet. She wasn't showing any signs of labor at all and with her day 145 of pregnancy not being til the 5th, I thought I had a few days before I really needed to be watching. Now I know if I see any sign of something different to keep an extra eye on it no matter what. Now I have no Pixie & no immediate relations to her She was such a joy to milk & such a people friendly goat. I sure hope this isn't a sign of how the rest of my kidding season is going to go! I have 7 more girls due this month, 6 due next month & the last 3 by mid-April.
