I have a four year old doe who has never kidded. She occasionally sits as a dog sits. (Front legs up, bottom down.) She is otherwise happy and normal. It just seems odd.  Has anyone else ever seen…Continue

"Thank you so much for your reply, Deborah! We took her to the vet yesterday. It's an abrasion and it's not infected. The swelling is down. We were told to treat it only with Neosporin and no antibiotic was needed. It looked pretty scary…"

"Sorry for the delay. There's not much you can do at home for something like that. Since it is swelling, sounds like it might be infected, but you would need an antibiotic to put in the eye, which is by prescription from a vet. "

New Member Greeting

Hello to all! What a wonderful forum. I’m happy to have discovered you – and your wisdom. Thank you Deborah for making this communication possible. I own each of the books you highlight and find them all insightful. I’ve enjoyed reading all about life at Antiquity Oaks. And, we have been enjoying our Antiquity Oaks soap. Thanks very much! I have two NDG does: Iris and Georgia. Tomorrow they turn two. My two (human) daughters are allergic to most furry things - but not goats. Iris and Georgia are our treasured pets purchased from Pocket Sized Goats in NJ. They arrived home with us at three weeks and were bottle babies. They have a happy life here in central NJ with plenty of room to roam, and a nice barn to sleep in. We have dubbed them “The Royal Goats”. We hope to breed them next year to have the experience of kids. I do have a pressing question which I will post next. I look forward to hearing your comments and hopefully sharing something useful to everyone else as well. Best regards, Jennifer
