Penis sticks out of sheath

Have any of you ever seen this before? One of my bucklings frequently has his glans sticking out of his sheath. Not fully extending and not displaying any other breeding or peeing characteristics. It…Continue

Polled questions

I bought my first polled doe this year. I ended up getting her at 3 days old because the breeder lives really close to me and the mother rejected the kids. At 12 weeks she is starting to have these…Continue

Weak kid

I have a kid who was born yesterday and I’m trying to determine if she is just tiny and weak or if there is something else going on like a selenium issue or other problem. Her front legs are…Continue

How early is too early for a goat to go into labor? What is the earliest that a doe can safely kid? Continue

"I have an answer! It is a prolapse of his prepuce. Just needed to be pushed in and lightly stitched. "

"Yeah I was wondering about that too. I was wondering if this was a defect he could pass on too and thinking maybe I should wether him. I’ll see what the vet says. Thanks guys!"

"The more I think about this the more I wonder if he will be able to breed a doe. I'd be interested to hear what a vet says about it. Let us know what you learn. "

"I agree. It’s unlike anything I’ve seen. He pees normally and is the biggest of his siblings so I know he’s growing fine and continually. He certainly doesn’t seem to be affected by it but it just threw me off the first few…"

"If it were me, I would have a vet take a look at that. It may be the angle of the photo, but it looks huge compared to the normal tip of the penis, and I do not see a urethral process. The anatomy just does not look correct. Has it always been that…"

"It does look different, but I probably wouldn't worry about it if he is acting normal. If you're concerned, you could ask your vet about it. Most of them are happy to answer questions over the phone and let you know if they think you need…"

Penis sticks out of sheath

Have any of you ever seen this before? One of my bucklings frequently has his glans sticking out of his sheath. Not fully extending and not displaying any other breeding or peeing characteristics. It almost looks stuck sometimes but if touched he fully retracts it. He will walk around acting totally normal with the glans out. It also looks different from other bucks. It’s much more like a thick tube as opposed to the typical slender shaft with distinct head.

Tammy Gallagher replied to Maggie's discussion Polled questions
"There MUST be a polled parent for a kid to be polled. A polled aunt, uncle, grandparent, etc does not count. As Deborah mentioned above, sometimes a goat is mistakenly disbudded, but is actually polled, and then they start 'mysteriously'…"

Maggie replied to Maggie's discussion Polled questions
"Sorry for the confusion. I should have separated those two questions. The 12wk old is definitely polled. The one in question who does not have polled parents is 6 weeks old. I’ve attached pictures of her. "

Deborah Niemann-Boehle replied to Maggie's discussion Polled questions
"I’ve never heard of a 12-week kid growing horns but then less than a pound at birth is really small. It is entirely possible for people to disbud polled goats and incorrectly register them as disbudded. That’s why there is a myth that…"
