    it will dry up over time. if you can you can milk her goats milk is amazing! or you can milk her and freeze it for future kiddings.

    OK THANKS ! she had twin but gave one to another goat. She just flat refused him. Then her second kid got squashed. Didn't want to lose her as well. Trying to grow our herd. Bought a herd from some old guy. Wasn't really a quality need bit thought they would have a better home with us. I have some learning to do.

    Yes! Start milking. When did she freshen? If it has just been a day or so milk her out and give the milk to whatever will drink it for a couple of days. After that enjoy!
