Some Health Items

22 Jun

I just have some health updates today.  Haley and Bambi must be getting some good out of the anti-inflammatory meds because they race to see who gets to me first.

I am also happy to say that Flower is doing really well.  She has completely grown her fur back in.  I think she is peeling a little from where she got sunburned when she was naked, but she’s doing well.

For some reason, after all this time, Masey ended up with an entropion eye.

I had to take her to the vet.

He put a clip on it, and she’s much better!

The Neglected Ones

20 Jun

It’s true.  This time of year, if a goat didn’t just have kids or aren’t about to have kids, then they are being neglected.

Onyx and Victoria (I decided a while ago that Onyx didn’t settle, but don’t think I mentioned it.)

Most of my time is spent with the moms and tracking kids and cleaning butts and all that fun stuff.  Everyone else is pretty much feeding themselves on the Back Forty and being self-sufficient.

Of course, my old girls are still getting their meds.

I do count all the older kids.

Shellie

I make sure everyone makes it safely up from pasture and aren’t over-heating.

Aurora (they are supposed to be sheared before I go on vacation.)

They are getting plenty of fresh water, and I made sure to put a new salt/mineral block over there for them.

Okay.  They really are not neglected.

They just think they are.

Copper Works

I still, after several years of dealing with the copper issues in the herd, still feel like I’m always guessing.

But I will say, in the last week I’ve noticed my three girls with hair loss are all growing hair again!

Haley

Look at those tiny hairs coming in!

Yay!  Now I just hope I can keep them going in the right direction.
