Hi all. A question... as i am a little clueless when it comes to goats. We have a goat that was in kid. She was scanned by our vet and it was confirmed. Is it possible for a goat to carry twins and abort one... the reason I am asking is she had blood on her tail and was very agitated. I have been keeping an eye on her. After the blood episode she looked a lot slimmer but her due date is coming and she is rounding up quite a bit

The only thing I would do it take her temperature, incase a dead kid is giving her an infection.

But if her temp is good, and she is acting healthy, then I would just wait and see.

There are many reasons that a kid might die in utero. They don't always abort the dead one....

But again, as long as she is healthy, just wait and see.
