Lily

12 Apr

My dear sweet Lily Bean.  She was the oldest goat on the farm at almost thirteen.

She was the first bottle kid born on the farm that I kept.  She was one of three that year, and she is the last one left.

She has so many descendents here that she will always live on, but I will miss her.

Gouda Eyes

25 Mar

You might remember I had to take Hilda’s boy, Gouda, to the vet to get a clip on his eye.

Well, the next day, I had to take Reva’s boy over for clips too.

When I took him, I also took Gouda back because below his eye was all swollen and purple.  They decided they must have his a little blood vessel, and it was just blood pooling.  No big deal.  I added him to my list of goats getting anti-inflammatory and pain meds, and all is gouda! Right?

Well, in the morning, the clip had come off because it was so swollen.  They couldn’t put it back on because of the swelling.  I got an eye salve to put in it, but the whole eye swelled shut.  It was filling with pus.  We added hot packs and changed the anti-inflammatory.

Finally, he went back to the vet and got shots of penicillin in the eye lids.  Poor baby.

But it’s finally looking better.
