One of the receptionists asked her when she was tube feeding how big she expected it to get, and Mrs DD said she wasn't sure (she's a cat/dog vet, not much goat experience), so the coworker asked the practice owner (50+ male vet).

His reply was "Oh, it won't get much bigger than that."

coworker: "Really? Is it some sort of pygmy or dwarf breed?"

owner: "Nope, they don't grow anymore when they're dead."

The extinction by heart attack part is amusing but correction on jump/leap is kinda lame because "jump 36 feet" doesn't imply "jump 36 feet high"...there's the broad jump and long jump, just as there's the vertical leap.

The "goat vet" we took her to gave her a "very slim" chance of living through the first week we had her. The story above took place within that week.

She was awake and looking around for short periods, but otherwise pretty unresponsive. Roughly 2 weeks old when we got her, and maybe half the weight she should have been. We tried bottle feeding at first, but she would only drink maybe an ounce or so of formula before giving up. We had to start force feeding with a tube, but even then we could only give her 3 or 4 ounces or she wouldn't be able to keep it down.

At roughly 4 weeks old she would drink a whole 20 oz bottle of formula maybe twice a day, but after that she started putting on weight fairly quickly. She's about 5 weeks old and maybe 12 lbs in this pic:
