    Just to clear up something. The baby didnt breed her. It was my older sire that got her. He is the one that was tied to the fence. She snook off to him.

    I would lute her...

    Recently one of my 4 month old doelings was accidentally exposed to our buck. It would not be safe for her to kid if she got pregnant. I called the vet and they prescribed the lute.

    How old is the doe? I'd lute if she is young.

    You can make a quick pen, go get 5 cattle panels and make a pen away from the does.
    4 for the pen, one for a small hoop shelter.

    Not necessarily an "abortion" medication.
    You need to talk to your vet. It doesn't cause in "abortion" if given at the right time- it keeps them from conceiving.
    Your vet can (should) explain it better than I can.
