That means a month and a half with no growth. SO now we have to ask ourselves what has changed for her since then?
Diva Stopped being brought in at night as a companion to Dorrit, as Dorrit was getting closer to delivery, We were done breeding does, and both does were now left out at night. With not coming in at night, and not being fed with Dorrit, Diva is no longer receiving special feed. She is being treated the same as our other dry does, and growing Doelings.
It is also winter, and we had an incredible cold snap shortly after taking her off of the extra feed. I think all of the does are concentrating on producing body heat and not on growth.
There may be a question on why we stopped feeding Diva the extra feed. The feed could keep her still growing, and maybe in the long run extend her life. We feel that to get an accurate picture of this genetic disorder, we need to treat her the same as her nearest companion in age. Dixie is also not receiving any extra feed. By supplementing her I feel like we would get a false representation of how this disorder progresses.
Diva is not thin, or underweight for her frame size, she has simply stopped, as if frozen in time. It will be interesting to see when the grass comes back on, in the lushness of spring, how she progresses, if she is still with us.
