Scenes From the Week

11 Jun

I am so far behind that this post now is from the last two weeks.  It was scheduled, and I had to keep moving it, and I’m still behind in what’s going on around here.

Two Weeks Later

25 May

It was about two weeks ago that I gave the goats the second copper capsule.  I think it’s exactly what they needed.

I’m already seeing lots of new hair growing.  Flower still isn’t back to perfect, but she obviously has a lot more hair on her ears.

Hopefully, that will also take care of the parasites.  Harley is starting to grow hair back where it fell out when I poured her.

I also hope the eyes will keep showing more red (less anemia).

Dolly

They do seem to be improving now.  I just need to figure out a good schedule and dose and hope it doesn’t change.

Casey

Oh yeah, I also need to figure out how to deal with the kids.  My weaned kids are doing well.

Bubbles

But the ones not getting sweet feed are starting to show signs of hair loss.

Sacagawea

I might have to do more weaning of kids.

On the Back Pasture

8 May

Once I got Myson to come through the gate, everyone else poured through.

They quit meandering along the ditch and started for the gate on a run.

Well, I did have to help three kids figure out where everyone else made it through.

Peter Pan, Snow White, and Wendy

Then it was feasting!

Harley and Cupid

Darling

Hopefully Mary will get fat again.

You can see how much more grass is on that side.

They were all happy.  Then I realized I was missing some kids.

It did not take long to figure out that Penelope, Anglea and Moira were on the front pasture with the bucks.
