    @nstone630, first welcome to BHY, I know you've been here for a while but I've been gone for a while and am just catching up with everyone. if it were me i'd clean her eye with some warm water and watch it to see. she probably poked herself in the eye with something. if it gets worse then contact your vet for some rx.

    I love your buckling's color and really glad he is going some place "fun". I have 4 bucklings right now that are going to be really hard to get rid of but that is the circle of life. :(

    It's been close to a month since you've updated this thread… :(

    How are the kids doing? Have you started milking the momma doe yet? How's the new doe settling in? :)
