Hip/pin bone dislocated?

Doe kidded 3 weeks ago, has slowly developed a limp and not wanting to put all her weight on that leg. affecting her eating. She had triplets one was born rump first - legs under (Frank breech?) the kid shot out with no time to try to do anything.She was checked by vet and he palpated her leg and didnt feel anything but determined the problem did seem to be coming from the hip. He checked her toe for any abcess, etc.If I were a chiropractor, I would wonder if I could manipulate it. When I look…See More

BTW, meant to tell you that, I especially like Romeo's 8 month old pic. I think he looks pretty tuff in it too! He struck a really nice pose there. Love that deep Mahogany color especially with those eyes! I would love to get the color of that look in my herd one day!

Well, you may actually mean Oak, after all. He is on my profile pic! He is from Oldesouth farm! That was actually the first buck I found, but it took me longer to get him here. I bought him as a kid and he is not proven yet. He is 16 months now and has 4 wives, so hopefully soon he will have children. You couldn't ask for one to pose any better than he did in that pic. He really was strutin' his stuff wasn't he? He was just as beautiful, when I finally got to him in person too. Only now he is so black! You wouldn't believe how that hair has grown out all black looking! He is still really tiny and short! Hope he grows some more. Sure he will as he is not even a year and a half yet. But I certainly do not think he will ever go over size, that's for sure. He is as fat as a little pig. Looked pregnant when I got him and still does. Very easy keeper! A real sweetheart too!

ok, no longer confused. "Mature buck", yea now I know which one you mean. That is Quill! Isn't he something! And you would not believe the gorgeous kids he threw there for that farm. I still can't believe that they sold him to keep his GORGEOUS SON! I was suppose to get the son and they changed their minds (I literally cried and was heart broken)about selling. But, I was even happier when I got the dad instead, because I know when you find an animal you like you go to the father to get more like that. HAHA, now I have the daddy! He was only 13 months when I bought him and she had about 20 kids out of him. He had bred 4 of her does in one day and those 4 kidded on the same day with about 16 kids! I can't wait to see what he does here! Hope I get all those pretty moonspots he can throw! He is as sweet as he is beautiful. Wild as crap when I got him, but a real little loverboy now. Just plain rotten, is what he is!
