    Oh she has milk in there, she's just never been bred so not really fresh.

    Here is a milk buck, scroll down until you see "Thrill". This buck is somewhere in about all of our lamancha herd.

    With the goats I just keep an eye on it. Not uncommon for that to happen. Once they kid it evens out.

    Yep. Some of our bucks come into milk but not to that extent.

    I don't know much about sheep but sometimes goats get a precocious udder and it isn't always both sides.

    **Update** The vet was out to give some vaccines, I asked her about the udder. Discovered that there is indeed milk in that one side. We think it might have been our new Ewe lamb trying to nurse off of her.
    I have never seen it happen but that doesn't mean that she doesn't sneak it . Now I just have to figure out how to dry her up.
