Recently I bought 2 Nigerian dwarf does that I adore from afar! They will be a year old in Dec. They ran with a herd that the seller said was closed and negative for CL, CAE, and Johne’s. They may be pregnant. I would love to know for sure whether they are or not but I’m not sure about the stress I would cause them in catching and restraining them to get blood. I did manage to collar one but they definitely do not want to be touched. They will approach me tentatively and reach toward my outstretched hand. They are also starting to lay down with my other does. Should I let the blood test go and focus on gaining their trust or go ahead with their CDT and BoSE and try to draw blood? If they are pregnant would it help to tame the kids if the two of them were penned up so that we could have close contact even though they don’t like it? I don’t like the idea of selling wild babies...I’ve had them for 1 month. I can accept that I am probably rushing them but all of you know the anxiety and longing that comes from wondering... The girl I bought them from said she didn’t see them in heat but being that they were pastured I’m not sure it wouldn’t be easy to miss.
