We have a Boer Doe who Kidded in March of this year, we bought her late May with her 2 Doe kids at foot.
She wasn't looking her best when we got her but she was soon back to normal.
Over the last few weeks we have been thinking she is looking a bit podgy but she is now Hugh, not an all over Hugh she actualy  looks at the late stages of being in Kid  !
The place we bought her does have 2 Boer Bucks
She did get into the field with William but that was only for minutes as as soon as we saw her we got her out and couldn't have been in more that 3-4 mins  but  that was in mid June so she wouldn't be this big already.
How soon after kidding can Boers come back into season and if its not kids what else could be causing it  ?
She is eating well and no signs of anything wrong. She has not been stuffing herself with Grass either

No signs of anything wrong with her. Healthy droppings, and she is like this all of the time even if she has not been out
