Improving

20 Oct

I have to say, I’m working hard to get everyone healthy.  It’s definitely a battle, but I’m winning the battle with my two little girls.  Chiffon is really doing well, and Venus is improving too.

I caught Tony and (with the help of my son) put him in the Love Shack.  He’s had the meds for the ulcers.

Now I need him to quit pacing and stressing over the girls.

In order to make room for Tony in the Love Shack, I put Fionn back with the rest of the bucks.  He’s doing quite well.

I got the copper capsules in all the goats again. I still had to use the pill pusher for a handful of them. Mary (Mary Quite Contrary) was the last one.

I’m kind of irritated with myself because I accidentally gave Joani two capsules.  I have a checklist, but you can’t carry it with you because the goats will eat it, and I messed up.

Joani

I think it will be okay, but look at her.  She doesn’t even seem repentant about taking an extra one.  In fact, I’m pretty sure she was looking for a third one last night.

Who Didn’t Get Caught

13 Oct

I mentioned I didn’t get all the girls caught and put in with the bucks.  I actually did better than I thought I might.  I was impressed I got Hilda in with Xerxes.   She was supposed to be with Zeus, but there’s no way I was dragging her there.  At least she’s with a buck.

Hilda

Still, I have four girls that I didn’t get caught.  After dragging Daisy across the barnyard to put with Zeus, there’s no way I was trying another difficult one.

Daisy

LilyAnn is in that same category.  She is way too much like her big sister Vinnie.  I’ll get her with a buck for June.

LilyAnn

Sidney would not have been bad to catch, but she did struggle raising her boys this year, so I thought I’d give her another copper capsule that could go just to her.  We’ll see if she gets a year off or if I put her with a boy for June babies.

Sidney

Joani is also still looking like she needs a rest.

After all, she did raise my only set of triplets this year, and she still has Wendy with her.

Then there’s Maisie.  I just looked at her and decided she was fat and nasty tempered, and I was not about to deal with that while I was sick.

Maisie

We’ll put her with Fionn for June babies (but not in the Love Shack).

The Healthy Ones

2 Oct

It seems like I’m always talking about who’s not doing well. It’s because I tend to obsess over them and how to get them back to healthy.  That means I tend to neglect all the healthy goats.  Here’s a few of them.
