Betty Moved

4 Dec

Betty Lou is my oldest goat.  She’s been getting meds to help her joints, and she’s one that I am constantly thinking needs copper.  She’s lost all of her face color again, so I’ve ordered more copper, and we’ll be starting the next round of copper capsules.  I decided to  move her up with the other old ladies.

Bonnie has no problem with her joints.  I just need to get more copper in her, and she might go back with the rest of the herd.  We’ll see.  Harley’s back is still giving her a bit of trouble now, but she is doing better than she was.

Penny also does really well as long as she gets the meds for her arthritis and isn’t trapsing all through the Back Forty.

I’d like to put all of these girls in the greenhouse because it’s insulated and would be warmer for them.  It’s also a little smaller space so they aren’t running around quite so much.  At least, that would be good for Harley and Penny.  Unfortunately, the greenhouse is the only place I can keep Zeus shut in.

Zeus

I had planned on keeping him until next summer, when everyone is looking for a new buck, but I don’t know if I can keep him that long the way he’s behaving.
