    I lost my wether yesterday due to bloat[​IMG]. I was wondering if my doe will be able to last two months by her self? She is three months along so I was thinking she might be able to wait two months and then just let her hang out with her babies once they're born. Think this is a bad idea making her wait? I could get a new goat for her to not be alone but I didn't think that would be a good idea. She's a Nigerian dwarf.

    My Pygmy lasted 3 months by herself when by other doe died. She did cry when she would see someone so I made sure to spend time with her everyday. About a month into it she ended up escaping everyday so we just let her roam the property and hang on the deck most days, lucky for us we don't have pretty garden plants, so we weren't too worried about her destroying anything.

    Hopefully I'll be able to get a boer goat kid next month to bottle feed so he can keep her company.
