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 abort early during the first pregnancy and this may be what is happening. This bleeding may also be caused by problems with the fetus making it unviable and your goats reaction to this is to reject this fetus. There is also chance that this bleeding is only premature and she may still deliver the kid or kids on time without incidence. There is nothing you or your vet can do at this point except wait and watch for any other signs. If she is aborting the fetus, there is no way to stop this process once it begins. With any luck, this is the goat preparing for delivery.

Does that make sense to you?
