    Stillborn kid, very sick Doe? Help!

    This is our first experience with kidding goats and so far it’s been absolutely tragic. One of our does had a premature stillborn on Monday night. (She was due at the end of June.) She’s always been the least dominant in the herd so a little on the skinnier side compared to the other two...

    Please HELP! My goat can't stand or keep his head up!
