    Well, my doe FINALLY kidded! Triplets! Two bucks and a doe. Please pray for the doe, she got too cold last night, and she isn't in very good shape right now...please pray that she will warm back up, and will be able to eat. :) Thanks! I'll try to get pictures later.

    If she is really cold still I have heard you put them in a warm bath to get their body temp up, you make it as warn as you can stand and put her in there up to her chin, that should warm her up...... so I've heard.

    Ricky you know I am praying.

    Keep up the coffee and I just thought of sugar water too. Wait till she is warm enough to be able to receive milk.

    you know to give me a call when you have more updates. :D

    congratulations on the babies, Ricky, and I hope the doe pulls through. Have you got a blanket on her? If she's cold, put a blanket on her and heap fresh straw on top.

    Congrats on the triplets. Karo syrup under the tongue works well for energy and some times easy to get in them. Wrap her in warm towels form the dryer and rub to stimulate her body. I would put a coat of some kind on her too. You can cut the sleeve of a sweat shirt used the cuff for the neck and cut leg holes. You can do the same thing with sweat pants. Hope she doing better.

    A quick way - like I said is to soak her in warm water. But you have to be careful and keep her out of the cold until she is FULLY dry.

    I am not sure if this is absolutely correct but I remeber from GW some of the members use to say to warm up a goat. Use equals parts of Coffee, Whiskey, and Karo Syrup mixed together and use a syringe (minus the needle) and put it in the goats mouth. Hopefully this help and I am praying for the goats and you too.

    you can make coats out of leg warmers they are great. i would take this baby in the house & get her warmed up as soon as i could. if you don't want to get her wet you can put her body in a plastic bag with her head out & put the bag in the warm water. also you can warm towels in the microwave. if you can get some warm colostrum in her that to will help. sorry i just now read this. prayers for her.

    A heating pad will help too. I have used it during the winter when my doe kidded and it helped alot to get them warmed up with towels from the dryer also. I am not sure with the seizures but it sounds like maybe the brain is swelling due to lack of oxygen and maybe Dex would help? Dont know the dosage for a baby .... And she needs her colustrum soon too before its too late.
