The Old Ladies

19 Nov

My old ladies are glad that our weather is warmer again.  I still have three of them shut up north.  Bonnie probably needs copper again already.  I just get so nervous.  I’m afraid that I’m going to overdose them.  But she is still showing signs of deficiency even with being shut up there and getting sweet feed every day.

Harley had her shot to make sure she didn’t get bred when Zeus was out.  She is still improving again after the white line disease aggravated her back.

Penny and Harley

Cupid misses Harley, but I just don’t have a big enough space for extra girls up there.

I’m afriad I might have to put Betty Lou up there too.  She’s another candidate for another copper capsule, and she is my oldest girl.

Penny is doing well.  She does have some arthritis that bothers, but she’s pretty good up  here where nobody will pick on her.

Penny

She was always such a dominant girl that everyone still wants to fight with her even though she has no desire to fight.

    They’re all SO lovely! My favorites are still the spotted ones. They’re so special.

    i have read about giving goats a handful of raisins everyday to help with arthritis. Have you tried this, and if so, can you see a difference? Your girls (and guys) are beautiful.

      They are on anti-inflammatory meds prescribed by the vet. I don’t know anything about raisins for arthritis.
