"Hi Leslie! If I had to guess, I would say that this is due to a change of hormones. The fact that the kidding was traumatic is just coincidental. I too have a very sweet doe that had a change in personality after having her first kids. Over the last…"

Tammy Gallagher replied to Ann Bodling's discussion Wether Bleeding from Band
"Oh No! It sounds like they may have used a band that was too big? Where you able to see what color the band is? The scrotum and testicles should be shriveled and hard, like mummified, by now I would think."

"It sounds like they may have 'hay belly' =)  Are they looking like this all the time? Do they go outside the barn at all? Any diarrhea? At what age were they weaned? Could you post some pictures? They certainly can get…"

Tammy Gallagher replied to Maggie's discussion Weak kid
"Oh wow! That is SUPER tiny! I had a 1 pounder a couple years ago. She literally fit in my outstretched hand. I fed her around the clock every 2-3 hours with a syringe for about 3 or 4 days until she was strong enough to actually suckle. My concern…"

Hi, Tammy. Good to meet you. My family has a small homestead in the Texas Hill Country and we raise a herd of 4 Nigerian Dwarf, 1 Boer, 1 African Pygmy and 5 Nigora Goats. Four of our does are currently pregnant, three of which are for the first time, and all due this April. We survived the recent snow and are excited for Spring. I am happy to be here with all of you. Thank you for the welcome.
