Retirements

27 Apr

I can tell you right now, there’s going to be a lot of girls retiring this year.

Haley

It’s been rough on them.

Mary

I think the copper capsules I gave them at the time they were bred went to the babies.  I am so happy to say that I am still not seeing any neurological issues from lack of copper before they were born.

But my moms are struggling.  They have hair loss, bottle jaw caused by anemia, lice, and general not doing well. I just wish I had a better plan how to help them.

I think the only thing I can do is retire anyone who has struggled.  Don’t get me wrong.  I still have quite a few girls who are doing well.

Joani and her triplets

Margarita with her peanut. She’s a question mark too because I stressed so much about how little she is.

We’ll see how my girls that are due in June handle it.

Hera

I’ve also decided to keep Bubbles.

Bubbles

She will be a replacement for her maa, Mary, and her Aunt Bonnie.  Because I do love my spotted goats.
