    I have a doe, who unbeknown to us, was a year round milker. We bred her and she just never dried off and about a month before she was to freshen she started to leak. So we would milk her totally out and a few days later she was filled again. We continued this regimen until she freshened and everything is as it should be now. She is a very strong milk producer and my guess is she will continue to milk through this year. Now I will be prepared and I don't think I will breed her. If she dries off I think I will let her body regroup from the stress of producing milk and kids for this year.
