    Looks like she may have mastitis. It could be congestion with fat molecules globbing- still a mild form of mastitis.
    Keep milking her out.
    Check her body temp (rectal). Is udder (that side) warm?
    You should use a CMT (California Mastitis Test) kit. They cost $12-14 but will last a long time, everyone that milks dairy goats should have this on their shelf. This item is usually ordered online.

    You may or may not need to treat with medicine. OTC would be something called "Today" it is a teat infusion.

    Do you milk 2x day?

    I milk once a day. And I can try to order one later this evening. I will attempt to take temp when my husband home she kicks while milk I imagine taking temp will be more dramatic.

    Usually they ok with temp, just put her in stanchion.
    Does she always kick? Or is it just one side or while this has started?
    If you can milk out that side 2x day that would be better.

    She always kicks her teats when her udder is full point in to her legs so when milking I touch her in leg she get mad and kicks I been tieing her leg for awhile now and if I leave her untied she kicks still. And if her legs not tied tight enough she kicks and if its to tight she tries to lay down it gets annoying my husband built a temporary milk stand that doesn't work that great for tieing her
