Something new everyday

I have a pen of first time doe kids that are due in late June.  They have several acres of grass, are being fed twice a day and have free choice to an alfalfa bale that has no mold in it.  They have mineral with CTC (chlortetracycline) in it for an antibiotic.  They were vaccinated before breeding.  They look real good and yet, everyday is a new day in the doe pen.  One of them aborted last night about 30 days early.  Don’t know why.  She hadn’t been sick.  I enjoy the goat industry, but I don’t like dealing with does.  But I don’t have a choice if I want to raise good ones.
