newborn has blood coming out of rectum : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

I have been raising goats for 6 years and have never had one have just blood coming out of the rectum. She is one day old and very frisky, nursing on mom, plump. There was not blood yesterday, but today it was dried on the hair on her legs and around her tail. I cleaned up the area, there was some of the yellow poop mixed with the dried blood. While I was cleaning her up I saw the blood come out of her rectum. Not thick and dark but bright red and more on the watery side. Just a little comes out. I have never seen this before, maybe you could help. Please

We have the same thing happening with a kid that was born yesterday. How is she now? Is she OK?
