Hi,I have a question about the grain you all use for when you have a doe in milk. I have always used a goat ration #16 percent protein.  I have friends that say you shouldn't use a prepared feed but…Continue

Hey Tammy, I just wanted to tell you that I have been looking at all of your pics and not only are you good at capturing nice angles (kid nursing) and often missed shots (kid about to poke hoof into the world) but you have some very pretty goats and kids. I know you must be real proud of how pretty your kids came out! I sure hope I get some that pretty!

There are a couple of conversations on here about disbudding. I have a Rhinehart X30 with the regular tip. The Nigerian/pygmy tip is really to small. We even get scurs with the regular tip on bucks sometimes.

The rumen is on the left side. It is so hard to know if they're pregnant by looking at their belly, unless they're really huge. Good luck!

If he's pooping yellow, it means he's getting something. If she has tiny teats, then it's probably not the exact same problem that Star's little kid had. Her teats were too long for her little kid's mouth.

My doe is a yearling, so I'm really surprised she had quads!
If your doe doesn't want to let one kid nurse, it could be that he isn't nursing correctly. We've all heard of human babies that don't do it right, and it hurts the mom. Well, animal babies sometimes take a little while to get it right also. I was always confused by why a mom would reject one kid until Star -- the perfect mother -- rejected one of her kids when she freshened at age 9. I watched the little doe nurse and realized she was sucking on the very tip of the teat. I have pictures and wrote about it on my blog. The good thing is that the mamas are usually willing to let the kids try, but after a few sucks that hurt, they won't let them continue. Check out the link to my post. Hope it helps!

I too love the spools! Builds a lot of muscle, which helps my goats win!!

My dad found the spools at electric companys. When they finish using them, they give them away free!! I've gotten spools of all sizes that way! Some even too big! Try some places that deal with the telephone poles or electricty, etc.

I believe the photo you are thinking of was posted by Crystal Swindell.
