I've been noticing for a while a knot in frazzles udder, I first thought maybe it was a bug bite but it hasn't gone away... I have only had her 6 weeks? I noticed it a few weeks ago when I was milking, it's about the size of a marble

I feel your pain, and you have a right to be upset! i just rescued new girls two with mastitis (lump in udder) and one with very bad hoof problems ......she could have just said that stuff so you would buy the goat..(i hope am wrong) but if she couldn't show the papers the day of sale i would be asking why? and there papers? doesn't sound good...as for you buying her anyway it sounds like she is in a better place...​

Has it changed in those 6 weeks since you had her? What pain med are you giving her? You could try B-L Solution which is natural stuff so you may be able to drink her milk.

Oh man, that stinks. Sounds like the woman is someone who shouldn't own goats. Obviously she is not properly caring for them. I'm surprised she doesn't have more deaths.

Have you tested her for mastitis?

I just did my nightly milking and it has grown a good bit. I just hasn't paid that much attention (I have Lyme disease and it reeks havoc on my memory) And she gets to being a booger when I milk about half way out on that side, I used to milk it second and I thought she was being a brat... I think it hurts her when I milk ): what good is a milk doe without feet to stand on or milk? Ugh. It just keeps getting better

Could have been an abscess. I would test for CL anyway, even if you have already. Flush with iodine, keep it clean and dry and keep an eye on it. Open wounds can develop nasty infections or harbor staph. Something you really don't want or need.

That could be. Also could be from swelling, etc. Did you get any clear fluid out of the spot?
