Enjoying Pasture

27 Sep

Now that the girls are not fighting, everyone can enjoy pasture again.

Moose–No fence it made to withstand that weight.

It helps that our weather is much nicer this week.

Stinky Boys

10 Aug

My bucks are coming into rut.

Xexes, Freddie, Frodo, and Benji

They stink.

They are thinking about girls and fighting.

Frodo and Benji

Unfortunately, I still haven’t been able to sell my March/April boys because of weather and vacations and such.  Now, I need to get rid of them.

Tommy and Cody

There are four boys who are way too big to live here any longer.

Tramp is bigger than Pretzel! I do NOT want any oopsie babies.

Unfortunately, these four are thinking about girls and fighting too.

Cody and Tommy after Penelope (and her boy Gonzo is there too).

Hopefully, even though the weather is going to be pretty warm, I can get rid of those young boys.

Another Round of Copper

5 Jul

I did give copper to all of the goats before I left.

Copper capsule hidden in a peanut

It was not made easier by some bratty goats like Bubbles who decided to chew it up and spit it out in pasture.

It didn’t turn out quite as well as I had hoped.  When I had to shift to using the pill pusher instead of peanuts, the pusher came apart, and I “pushed” part of it down Ava’s throat with the copper capsule.  I had to call the vet, and he did say that since it was smooth, it was probably a non-issue.

I luckily had a pill pusher I could use to finish giving it to the rest of the goats.  But I’m at a loss.

I did find a replacement baller that should not be a problem.
