I come bearing sad news, the babies were way to big for her, and we are pretty sure there were 2, all the vets were on call and to busy to come to us, and by the time we got her up there, it was best just to have her euthenized. And so we did. Sad news, and it was due to irresponsibility of breeding the goat to a billy that was way to large for the doe, on top of it being her first babies.

Um, no.

It was because someone who didn't know the first thing about goats decided to buy a pregnant doe.

You're responsible for her death and the death of the kids, not the buck. You need to learn to accept culpability for things, instead of constantly shoving the blame off on others.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Dadgum SR, how old do you think the OP is? Her mum got the goat, her mum was gone at work, she beening a young woman (teen) did the best she could. Back off the laying of the blame.

Even bred to a larger buck, the kids will not exceed size in the womb that a doe can carry and deliver. They are like horses in that respect.

I believe the loss of the doe and kids was more likely due to the kid being stuck for 2+ hours before vet attention was sought.

I am sorry for your loss, but this is seeming to become a recurring theme with you - please, please, do not bring home any more animals that you are unprepared to provide care for.

The OP is an adult. I believe she is actually 19.

Why is it wrong to point out facts that are being neglected? It is OK for the OP to lay the blame on someone else (the buck and the person who bred the doe to the buck).

Nope, this OP has a very long history of such things, and those of us who have been here longer than you are tired of her trying to throw the blame off on anyone other than herself.

She's also not a child. She's past the age of majority, so she needs to stop acting like a preteen who needs Mumsy and Daddums to make decisions.

Gotcha, my bad, sorry! I have a 10yr old who it takes moving mountains to get her to own her own mistakes. I certainly hope she is there by 19.....

Gotta grow up & see the real world.
