I have a pregnant Nubian who breed with our Alpine buck when the were young. She is pregnant, but don't know when exactly she will freshen. The other day she appeared to be in labor. I felt contractions, she would lay down, get up and walked very slowly. Was overly affectionate but wouldn't eat or drink for days. Had to force her to drink. Her udders were hard and the size of an orange. However, ligaments still seemed hard. After 3 days, she was back to normal, eating, jumping and playing as usual. Did she have false labor? Is that possible? Or could something have happened to the kid? Her actions looked like labor, but her physical condition didn't. Now her udders are softer and about 1/2 the size they were, thats what concerns me. These are my 11 year old's goats and our first ones, just want things to go right. They are absolutely adorable, wish we would have gotten them sooner.
