Well in a round about way I ended up with a 2 year old Nubian (X probably) After unsuccessfully trying to breed my little doe, Mary twice I said enough is enough after she bled out the second time. Bye, bye buck and ended up with this doe, Glenda. Her name was Linda, but it was just to weird for me...lol. Anyhoo. Her condition is not that great. She has gained weight since I've had, brought her home last Wednesday, so not even a week. Apparently she had had triplets and they all died. Glenda was also in with a bunch of other does and their kids, and the kids were also using her as a milk dispenser as well. Would that have helped contribute to her condition now? Or was she just not getting enough feed? I have wormed her and she eats and eats. I let her graze a few hours a day, plus she gets pretty much free choice hay and some alfalfa cubes and her grain. She is only 2 years old. I have been milking her, need to get a milking stand, though. She is a sweetheart while she's eating her grain, but when it's gone she acts foolish. I am becoming a really fast milker, haven't milked anything in years, but it's like riding a bike again.
