    Proven Buck for Sale

    I’ll start with I have no idea if this is the right place to post this. We have decided to sell all our goats. Everyone is spoken for except, Cash. He is a 2 year old, Nigerian Dwarf. He has blue eyes. We tested in February and all tests are negative. We are located in Duluth, GA...

    Goats definitely scream loud enough for all to hear. I’ve never been so late getting my garden really established. I love the goats but I have a hard time releasing stress. This will be a good opportunity to see if we miss them so much that we have to get more. If not, I’m a wealth of...

    I sure understand. I have chicks that should have been sold by now. So busy with goats, that they haven’t been the center of my attention. Hubby moved them out of the brooder into the kidding pen we constructed on our patio. At this point, do I just keep them until I can sex them or offer...

    I don’t know how you do it. I’ve been trying to plant my garden on top of everything else. I haven’t found that peaceful place recently.

    It has been a hard decision but the last month has been overwhelming. This is supposed to be fun. I don’t mind hard work but the excessive stress is too much. We’ve learned a lot and will do things differently if we get more. Your lambs are super cute.

    Thanks, now to find them all homes. Thanks. It has been a difficult decision. I thought we found someone who wanted the does and adult bucks. I’m not hearing back from them. I know they have lots going on. If I don’t hear something soon, I will start posting them. Glad things are going...

    I wish that it would have worked. Everyday I practice my rodeo skills trying to leash her to put on the milk stand. My 2 other does are all about the milk stand because it’s the only place they are given crack. Not Dolly, half the time when she’s up there she doesn’t even eat. I need to try...

    Dolly kidded this morning about 8:30am. I kept thinking she was going to go last night and kept waking up every 2 hours checking the camera. I came down to feed the other kids and she had a bubble hanging. Buckling 1 was born shortly thereafter followed very quickly by his brother. No...

    She pooped in utero. She was septic and had pneumonia due to the meconium aspiration. She sounded a little snuffy from day 1 but I attributed it to everything being inflamed from delivery just like in human babies. She never sounded bad except the day she died.

    I got the final necropsy report back. It said that our little doeling, Marshmellow, died from sepsis caused by meconium. Her mineral levels were normal but the selenium is in the low end of normal. Anyone have experience with this happening?

    Well, it’s crazy at my house. I’m sure y’all are also. Tipsy kidded Saturday night. Of course in true Tipsy fashion, she didn’t want anything to do with her babies, a buckling and a doeling. So, we now have a goat condo in our kitchen. All the babies seem to be doing well. The first 2...

    Preliminary necropsy report, nothing showing cause of death. I requested liver study to check mineral levels. That could be a couple of weeks out. They said it could have been hypoglycemia but that doesn’t show up on a necropsy.
