    I am currently trying to dry up my Nubian doe, but she just does not want to stop producing! I read that Sage can help reduce milk supply, so I fed her 2 "wads" of fresh organic sage this morning. Now I am reading that it can cause abortions in people, is the same true for goats?! I will be holding off on the rest of the sage for now. Does anybody know if it is truly unsafe or not?

    This morning she had some white discharge, but nothing else. Definitely staying away from sage when it comes to pregnant does!
