Cutting back

Recently a friend asked how much I feed my goats and how often. Well as of Monday I have cut back from twice a day to only am feeding. They have all the second cut they want and fresh water, minerals and baking soda . We built a 3 sided shelter for them as well, I now lock them out of the barn durning the day. This really will help to keep the barn cleaner longer. Hope this doesn't sound cruel . Curious to know what other people do.

Moose

Today my husband and I had to put our beautiful Moose to sleep. The vet had no idea why he got sick and to find out is apparently expensive. So while I was holding him the vet put him down. Very emotional for the both of us. …

Wounds

I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I have a goat that has both knee's all banged up. The fur is gone and he's constantly reopening the scabs. Is their something I can use to wrap his knee with or some other type of remedy ? I keep washing it with warm water and then he's fine for a little while, then he hit's it on something and does it all over again.. Help

Little goat is home, Meet Oliver.

The little guy came home today, he's settling in just fine. We made a outside pen for him for the day time and we have him in the barn tucked away safe and sound for the night. I will keep him away from my other two for a while. This guy is small. After all this he might not be staying with me long. I have a few people very interested in him. We'll see. This time it's all about finding the right home for him, if I can't well then I guess I…

Little goat coming home

So I've decided to take in the unwanted Nigerian Dwarf goat that a co-workers daughter bought because she thought it  was cute, had if for a week and decided she didn't want it, so off to another co-workers home because she thought her son would like it, well it's been about another week and she doesn't want it.
