Hi,  I'm having trouble in my barn with a 6 month old female twin doeling trying  to mount the other goats,  vocalizing vociferously and so dedicated that she doesn't stop pestering to eat.  She is polled    from a polled mom and horned dad, so i…Continue

Ultra Boss Pour on For Kiddos?

Started by Chelsea Bell in Goats 101. Last reply by Deborah Niemann-Boehle Nov 28, 2018. 1 Reply

Hey all. My two ND kiddos have lice. I purchased the Ultra Boss pour on. According to the dosage, it states to give 1.5 ml per 50 lbs. should I give them this dosage? They are probably 15 lbs max. It says to pour on back and face. Is the fact…Continue

Drying up my goat

My 7 year old has never had a baby and I have never milked her.  Her udders would look full every year and then go back down.  The last couple of years they didn't go back down and this year they got huge.  The vet said I had to milk her.  Now it's…Continue

A Year (and a half) in Review

Posted by Naomi D'Andrea on December 11, 2016 at 9:29pm 3 Comments

Bought the kids July 2015. Bred Mira January, first travel and goat-sitters March, babies June, learned how to milk, sold babies August, started playing with chevre and cheddar, built cheese press, rigged a sort of cheese cave, expanded goat yard, added more play structures for the goats...

...and I keep putting off the eternal question from Willow, "Can I keep another doe next year?" I keep waiting for the proverbial bloom to fall. I waited to see if she'd get tired of the constant…

Posted by Sophie on May 20, 2016 at 4:28pm 1 Comment

Hey! I have a question for anyone who'd be kind enough to answer! :) I'm new to goat, we just got 3 NG last week. One 7 year old milking doe, a 15 week old and a 8 week old doeling. When can the babies start going out to pasture? (we have a very safe and "kid" proof pasture) They haven't been in the pasture yet so I'm thinking I have to work them up to it like horses? How would I exactly do that? Also, the doe hasn't been in the pasture for a week but that's fine to put her in it all day…
