I have a doe that I did not bread last year. Her bag is full. She has not been milked in a year! How is that possible?

I know women who haven't nursed in years but still let down for a crying baby, so it seems like the same could be true for some does.

If she is from a heavily milking line she is probably a maiden milker - they come into milk without being mated and without having a false pregnancy. I know someone who has milked a goat for years that has never kidded..
