just noticed Maggie is lactating.. definitely not "with bullies"
Ok, so Maggie went through her heat cycle in July. Nothing unusual; wore a diaper like a fasion model. She is definitely not pregnant.
Her boobies are saggy.. I just figured that maybe she was bred before (although I hope not, cuz she is only 2 year old)
But today, as I was giving her a belly rub, I noticed a crusty substance on her teets. And her lower 4 boobs are warmer than the rest of her belly area..
I cleaned the crustiness off and did a bit of light "milking" (at a loss for a better word) and sure enough,.. milk.. not cloudy colustrum.. it's white milk looking.. so weird!

She should be fine, don't express the milk- otherwise it won't dry out and she may be stimulated to make more. If she does it could lead to mastitis.
