    My possibly pregnant doe keeps twisting her head up and around like she is doing some wierd stretch or something. Anyone seen this before?

    true startgazing is when they have goat polio -- so no that wouldnt be normal.

    But the head twising thing I noticed happends more often when my girls are pregnant.

    I had a doe who would do that when she was impatient. It was like "Mom come on, faster with the food!"

    I only have 1 doe that does that. And she does it more when she isn't bred. :shrug: Either way, it's a goat thing and completely normal. :)
