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.

I might have to do more weaning of kids.

Looking Green

14 Apr

My pasture is really starting to look green.

Odie and Maybeline

Everyone is enjoying being out of the barnyard.

Astra and a bunch of kids

The kids are really getting big and enjoy running around and nibbling grass with their moms.

As an aside, you can see that my Quonset hut did not survive the strong winds from this past week.

Reva and Michael

I love looking out the window and seeing all the goats happily munching.

Although, it’s still weird seeing the bucks where my garden used to be.

Xerxes, Anubis, and Zeus

I kind of like not having to feed four or five bales of hay everyday too.

The Kind of Weekend

8 Apr

This past weekend was the kind when you could stand outside and watch the grass turn green.

The weather was warm.

Moose (Bambi and Stormy in the back)

We had a bit of rain.  It was enough to make the goats want to lounge in the pasture instead of the barnyard.

It was pretty much perfect.

LilyAnn

The goats are really enjoying the green.

Betty Lou on Saturday; Maggie on the same hill on Sunday

And the weekend ended with a quick storm that left a beautiful rainbow behind it.

Truly perfect!
