Ok I hae bought a Boer doe sight unseen last night, as I am hoping that I will be able to help her and add her to my herd of meat does. But she has an issue and was wanting your opinions on what I should do when I get her to my ranch. The doe is a pure unregistered Boer 5 years old. Has kidded once a year with no issues, really good mom, and a prized doe from her owner. Mandie kidded on February 22nd with triplets. She has a huge udder that the owner says is darn near dragging on the ground - now for the sad news - she lost all three triplets within a few days. Owner believes that they were not getting enough colostrum. She is not milking the mom currently. She is making sure that Mandie is getting up, walking around, eating and drinking, but says her bag is real full and the teats are almost touching the ground. Now I can't get to her to pick her up until Saturday the 7th, (next saturday) - I am wondering if her ducts are blocked in her udder. Is there a strong possibility of her getting mastitis? Do you think she will be completely dry by the time I get her home, or is there a possibility that I will still be able to milk her?? Just curious. I have never delt with this before, and of course this is my first time dealing with a goat bigger then me........ lol! Thanks everyone!!!
