Getting Through

17 May

I think I’m getting through most of the stuff I need to do to get the herd back to healthy.  The vet came yesterday, and we treated the rest of the goats.  I just hope it’s soon enough that everyone can recover.  Mary has been very ill.

After everyone got treated, I put Lily, Vixen, Vinnie, Pistol and Antigone back with the rest of the herd.  Luckily, there wasn’t much fighting.  I hope that continues.

Pistol, Antigone, Lily, Vinnie, Vixen, Maggie and I can’t tell who’s clear back there.

I do have four yearling girls that I haven’t given a copper capsule to because I planned on selling them this summer.  I don’t want to keep them another six months, so they will be leaving the farm this weekend.

I also need to wean some kids.  Then I can put them in another area and feed them hay that didn’t come from my farm and make sure they have plenty of minerals.

I will probably also sell the kids this weekend other than the ones I am keeping (or already have homes for).  Then I just have to hope that the copper helps those babies coming in June.

Sidney (yes, she is pregnant; hopefully just one)

I am really looking forward to getting this under control and having their health improve again.
