If you can loop a cord around the lower jaw, it will help you to position the head correctly.

If the bottom of the hoof is facing upward, it is a back leg, and the kid is deliverable.

I'm so sorry about this trauma - for the doe and for you. I know you are doing the very best that you can. I hate to tell you this, but if that kid is not delivered, both the doe and the kid will die. It IS possible to pull that kid with only one leg presenting - It's a really hard, hard pull; I've had to do it in the past. How long has your doe been struggling with this labor?

That's too long! Doe must be exhausted. You'll have to sacrifice the kid if you want to save the doe.

At this stage, I'd pull with all my might to get that kid out of there. Oh, how I wish I could help you!
