"Thanks Deborah. What would be the max? I've always read a lb/lb of milk given, but always think geez looks like a lot of grain for a Nigerian! I'm concerned when I start milking about over feeding grain. However, know I'm muddying the…"

Thanks for the help, Melissa. I'm treating the girls for lice. I'm actually in Alaska, and we still have lice issues even without heat and humidity. I just haven't had problems with any of my girls losing their fur because of lice, so I'm worried it's a deficiency issue. I gave them all a copper bolus and a bit of Bose, but am wondering if they need more zinc too.

BTW, meant to tell you that, I especially like Romeo's 8 month old pic. I think he looks pretty tuff in it too! He struck a really nice pose there. Love that deep Mahogany color especially with those eyes! I would love to get the color of that look in my herd one day!

Well, you may actually mean Oak, after all. He is on my profile pic! He is from Oldesouth farm! That was actually the first buck I found, but it took me longer to get him here. I bought him as a kid and he is not proven yet. He is 16 months now and has 4 wives, so hopefully soon he will have children. You couldn't ask for one to pose any better than he did in that pic. He really was strutin' his stuff wasn't he? He was just as beautiful, when I finally got to him in person too. Only now he is so black! You wouldn't believe how that hair has grown out all black looking! He is still really tiny and short! Hope he grows some more. Sure he will as he is not even a year and a half yet. But I certainly do not think he will ever go over size, that's for sure. He is as fat as a little pig. Looked pregnant when I got him and still does. Very easy keeper! A real sweetheart too!
