There’s Always Something

2 Dec

When you have animals, there’s always something going on.  Even routine things can end up being a problem.  For example, when I trimmed Cinnamon’s hooves, I made her hoof bleed. Barely, but I did put a pretty purple bandage on it for. her.

Haley is doing well, but I think the cold is bothering her foot.  It was a major surgery, and I might have to start her back on the anti-inflammatory.  They did tell me she had spurs and arthritis, so she would probably appreciate it.

Now, Benji is the one giving me grief.  He suddenly has diarrhea.  I’m trying to take care of it, but he isn’t responding to my treatments.

He acts fine, but he’s a mess.

The little ones up there with him are fine, so I have no idea what is going on.

Then there’s Trace.  She decided she didn’t want to wait until January to make kids, so she joined the bucks.

I am thinking the one oopsie baby per week is going to make April a long month.  They better stop this.

    I’m so sorry abut all the problems you are going through with the goats! As much as we love our animals, they can always give us problems. Right now, we are having problems with my daughter’s service dog. His ears are irritated for some reason, and have not been standing up as they have been. They don’t seem to be painful, but we’re not sure what is going on.

    I hope all of your goaties can shape up. The diarrhea you mentioned concerning Benji are a real puzzle. I pray that he will improve.

      Benji is finally doing better. There really is always something with a large herd like mine. It just comes with the territory!
