Thanks Karen for your reply, I got on the goat 911 and someone told me to try feeling for babies like you said, I tryed that I am not sure I did it quite right I didn't feel anything hard like a kid, her belly wasn't mushy it just felt tight. she is still breathing short fast breaths and when I go into the barn she is kinda grunting and pushing a little, she has passed alot of afterbirth but maybe she still has some more to pass. I don't think I have ever had a goat keep breathing fast and pushing like this for so long. I gave her 3cc of penncillin and I am getting ready to go back out and feel her belly for babies I don't think I did it quite right before. Thanks again Cindy Oh I almost forgot the babies are still doing ok and she is still licking and careing for them.
