We have only had one doe prolapse. Starting about 2 weeks before she delivered, she would on occasion lay down and the prolapse would occur. It would last for about 5 to 10 minutes and then she would draw back up inside, get up and go about her business (I think she would usually draw back up as she got up). This happened several times before she finally gave birth to twins. They can be stitched up, but I believe that you must be there to cut the stitches for the birth. Upon the advice from our vet, we gave her an antibiotic injection as a preventative for any infection and then kept a careful eye on her.
I don't know how closely this matches your situation. I hope that it is of some help. A call to the vet is probably the best idea.

Hi,Thanks guys I called the Vet he doesn't do goats but did sell me enough sedative to put her out this is what I found. There was a tear in the Lupen skin that is between the rectum wall and vaginal wall the rectum had fallen through this tear and was exiting through the vulva. What I did was was everything with Betadine aand put dextrose on this to shrink it a bit and then rewashed I put it back up through the tear I inserted a finger into the rectum to line it up there then put a purse string stitch in the tear to hold it in. I am waiting for her to wake up and then I will give a laxative to thin her out so she doesn't strain any and put pressure on the suture. I am giving her IV's of LRS to keep her hydrated. I don't know if this will work or not but i had to try.
I did think of that, but because of your wording of "girl thingy" I honestly figured you might not know enough of what you were looking at to make it even worth mentioning that the only way that could happen was if there was a tear all the way through. That was also why I mention a vet... hope that makes sense without sounding rude!
Assuming she doesn't get too stressed, she should be okay, but I would watch very carefully for signs of infection because of the would and feces that may mix, as well as any feces that might travel through to the vaginal cavity.
These board by default have a bad word system that replaces certain terms with other terms... "girl thingy" is a default replacement for several terms for female anatomy.. look, it did it to mine too, and I didn't even notice! So shame on me too..lol.
Going to send Bob a PM and ask him to modify the bad word filter to be a little more useful..lol.
