    My goat is in labor. She has had 2 so far and has something hanging from her rear end... Is this normal? Is she going to have more? Please help and tell me what I should be expecting! Thanks!

    It is probably just the afterbirth, she should pass it soon, don't pull it or try to get it loose, it will pass and fall out on its's own. Don't be surprised if she eats it, that is normal also. Congradulations on the new babies.

    CONGRATS on the babies! Are you keeping either of them? Good Luck with them and the mama. Bye.
