Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
It is not unusual for goats to take a break between kids. Give Grace some time and once the kid starts to nurse, this will stimulate hormones which will cause her uterus to contract again. If this does not happen, your vet can give you an injection of oxytocin to help the uterus contract to remove either other kids or remaining material that must come out.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
