I was wanting to know from others experience, are there ways that you can check to see if your does are bred. I had difficulty telling when our does were in heat. I would put the does with the buck when I suspected they were in heat. At this time, they don't appear to have much interest in him, and the last few times I tried putting a doe with him, the doe wouldn't go and would run from him. I would hate to find out they were not bred when spring came. The does have never been bred before, they are 18 months old, and are fainters. Are there ways for me to check, if not, what tests can a vet do to check, and do you know how much the tests run? I have a 2nd question...we have another doe about a year old, she hacks/coughs very hard when stands up. The occurrence seems to happen every time right before I feed my goats. They are usually lying down, and when she gets up she hacks like there is something in her throat. After she gets going, I never hear it. None of the other goats have it, and she has had this for awhile. Any idea what this might be? She eats and acts well. This is my first time posting. I appreciate your help! If I haven't posted right, sorry.
