"Just now saw your post before last. We used to do exactly what you're doing, but the transition to goat life was usually too hard for us and the goat, so now I do my very best to get the kid back outside and with goats ASAP. They eventually…"

"He passed away a little bit ago. We tried swinging again which seemed to help and I thought he was going to pull through, but it looked like he finally just gave up. Poor little guy! He was held and loved till the end though."
