15 May

Despite finding out what is wrong with my kids and being able to treat it, there’s nothing I can do for the kids who have already had neurological damage.  That means I had to have Clover’s babies put down.

Ares and Brigit

Now I’m milking again.


I was surprised how much milk Clover had because she didn’t have hardly any when the kids were born.

Of course, since I’m milking, Cinnamon decided she was going to be milked also.

Athena was not quite as happy about that.


But she’ll be fine, and I’m probably going to need that milk for June kids.

    I am so sorry you are going through this with your goats. I can’t imagine how hard it must be. At least you have an answer and know how to treat, but that doesn’t make the losses any easier.

    Being a farmer is not easy on the heart.

      Absolutely not. It should get better now that I know what is going on.

    Sorry to hear this. I assume the milk is fine?

    Sweet Athena! Sad, but glad you have some answers and a solution.

    I’m so sorry about Ares and Brigit. They were so sweet! I knew right away that you could use Clover’s milk, but it cracked me up that Cinnamon wanted to be milked too! She wants the treats, right?

    Did you get the copper for treating everyone? And figure out the best way to administer it? I thought it was pretty funny about the marshmallow method…

      Cinnamon is all aboit the sweet feed while milking. The copper question will be answered in today’s blog post. 😉
