So far so good!

Nothing overly good or bad to report this week, and I am happy. Everyone, for the moment appears to be out of imminent danger and looks healthy. Indiana is getting VERY pregnant, and Brandi even more so. Brandi's udder has started, and yesterday she was breathing like Darth Vader while I was doing chores. No other changes yet, but I have started her grain and bringing her up to the porch at night before David leaves for work. She's due on the 13th (day 150) but I think we may see kids by…

David was about to call the nut house this morning I was so excited I was dancing and hollering and I am still high from this an hour later!

Yesterday was the girls herbal holiday where they got plain bottled water…


Don't Drink the Water!

Interesting development in my search for answers last week, but first some recap and back story.  This summer the pumps on our community well were changed ( and their may have been other issues), so we received a boil advisory "until further notice" which turned out to be about a month.  Call me lazy all you want, but you try boiling water for 16 animals and 2 people in HOT summer and only 4 burners 2 pots and 2 saucepans I promise you will pay for bottled water!…


5 days of herbs.

So here we are after 5 days of herbal wormer with the goats. After the first day when they ate the entire half batch that I made , they didn't eat much of it any other day.

I did a fecal on Ty who has had diarrhea for a few days that I thought was related to coccidosis. I did see what i thought were HC, but they weren't elevated the way  I have seen in the others.  But the meds weren't working,  and he was still eating and playing well. So I decided to take him to the vet. Turns out…

Glad to hear to things are "up" for you! Congrats on the job. :) Things are going good here -- having show withdraws as this is the first year my Grand Champions are not being shown. :( Between the three of them they stole Grand Champion at the show for six straight years. And alas, they are now just pets --- but we are having so much fun this summer!

Glad to hear from you! I was wondering what you've been up to!

They haven't researched it beyond the four months, so I don't know. I look for signs of deficiency. Red hair roots on a black goat; white roots on a gold goat. Balding on the face, ears, and tip of tail. If you're giving it for copper deficiency, I can't imagine you'd need it more than about once every three months.
