"Thank you for responding, Glenna. I am definitely very attached to my goats. I'm leaning towards taking them, provided that we can find a property that has a setup."

"Let us know if you use the P-test and what you think. Even though I've had mine for a few years, the expiration date is 7/21, so I still have time to try them. I need to make a solid effort to get out there with a stack of dixie cups this fall…"

My family has been considering moving for awhile. We currently live in AZ and are looking at moving to Alabama. Nothing is set in stone, however I need to start considering what I'll do with my goats if we  do move. On one hand, I am very attached to my goats and would hate to leave them, but on the other hand, I'm not sure if it's really practical to move goats that far.Has anyone here ever moved that distance with goats? Pros and cons? I need to decide if it's really worth it or not. I just…See More

"I've used the blood test quite a bit and had great results. I have not used the P-test, but I have had some people tell me that it gave them false positives. I bought the P-test when I first heard it was available, but actually going out there…"

"Thanks everyone for the responses! I think I will try alfalfa. Mine all weigh between 30 and 35 pounds, so I guess the 2 gram capsule will be fine?"

"I know marshmallows are a popular option. I'm not a huge fan because marshmallows are usually made out of gelatin, which is usually made from ruminant bones, and because of mad cow disease, you are not supposed to feed ruminant animal parts to…"

GINGER K BRAUN replied to Lil's discussion Questions about copper bolusing
"I read somewhere to cut a marshmallow in half, pour the particles on the sticky part, squeeze it back to together and put in their mouth. They don't waste any or spit it out. Thoughts? Is that bad for them? Mine like it. I prepare and put them…"

"I've heard of people mixing it into all sorts of things -- whatever your goats will eat -- bananas, fig newton cookies, etc. I don't see why alfalfa crumbs wouldn't work. "
