I am sorry for your loss. It would be devastating. We have goats for money from milk and kids but I don't see it that way. I see them as my babies. Do you know how much a system like that would run? I felt V's and they are definitely there hard and pencil like, but I cant feel Bella's they have been gone for about 3 days now so sounds like she will be like your doe. I will just keep checking on her and making sure she is alright.
