I have a Toggenburg that I got this spring. She had just freshened and her kids were gone when I got her. She never gave me much milk, and round about the end of June I wasn't getting enough milk to make it worth the effort, so I dried her off. I fed her appropriately for a dry goat and figured I'd try again next year, and then if she doesn't milk well she's gone. In July I noticed she was getting kind of chunky and I started thinking maybe she'd bred back after having her kids. The people I got her from keep a buck, so it was possible although unlikely. My brain finally kicked in (hey, better late than never!) and I remembered that dairy breeds are usually only in heat Sept-Jan. I'm more experienced with Pygmies, who breed year round, so that fact just didn't occur to me until recently. She is still obviously chunky and really doesn't like me feeling her belly or udder, which is unusual for her. She has been wormed appropriately and is otherwise perfectly healthy So I guess my question is . . . is it at all possible for her to be pregnant now? Based on when I got her, she'd have to kid by the end of this month if she'd been bred the day before I picked her up. I'm wondering if there is any chance of her having kids now or if I should just figure she isn't pregnant and send her over to be bred. Has anyone ever had a doe kid this late in the year?
