    Around here nobody neuters their LGS's. And then they wander. And nobody seems to connect the dots or maybe care. Also they keep males and females together in the same pasture and they make copious puppies so they can list them on CL for $200 each and then they don't sell so they dump them. He...

    The cidr party is rolling along. Someone on our church fb page had a young Anatolian puppy dumped in their yard today and they are trying to place for free. Anyone want half a a cup of trouble and a whole lot of who knows what?

    Baby Shaun is showing a bit of a technical inclination lately and everything is getting taken apart and all bottles and containers are being opened and left everywhere like he's got itchy hands and just can't help himself, so I've been a bit busy. But before I go put the jetted back together...

    You know, I don't think he's thought that far ahead. That's what makes him so "dangerous".

    Thanks. Dan lately puts his energy into begging for armies of cows, a truck and trailer (can't imagine what he is planning to do with those...) and ROLLER SKATING, thank goodness. I finally got him hooked on something semi non-dangerous and lately he lives in skates. he still takes things apart...

    Funny thing is the chunky toddler really looks like this. Tot faces are so squishy. That was quite a pose.

    We left Thursday for the Reelfoot Lake cabins for an end of summer celebration vacation weekend as part of the proper care and feeding of husbands regimen. I've been taking breaks watching the kids staring at the lake wishing for a fishing. DH picked this location for his last break this summer...

    No, we missed that, thank goodness. The weather is very localized here. The next town over can get pounded with sheets of rain for hours and we get nothing or vise versa and the flooding with all the death is about 4 hours away. For some reason Kentucky is always the place that nature wants to...

    I had to pull a cidr on one of the young lamancha does in milk. She wound up covered in what I assume was pee all down her udder and leg and it was getting steadily worse and I did not want her to go the full 11 days. So if she cycles I'll breed her, and if not, we'll get her a date at first...

    Doe with Polio Before Pregnancy, kids are losing red blood cells

    Baerman fecal. They don't shed eggs until they are mature and they start causing issues before they are mature. Or you can treat it with Valbazen or Ivermectin Plus dosed orally, 2x 10 days apart. Fluke does NOT cause diarrhea though. I missed that part. It just causes them to first go down...

    Did the fecal cover coccidia? Liver fluke is another often silent killer to consider.

    I also coppered and began giving a course of replamin, as well as making sure every adult doe had a microchip. Onto babies and bucks at some point. Emmi the lamancha and Iris the mini saanen are on the docket to milk through and not be bred this year.

    Cidrs in. Pull day is the 11th for the 6 standards and the 16th for Eri the dwarf due to shorter average gestation length to put them all kidding around the target date of January 8th. Going to be a heck of a day if they all go on time, but that tends not to happen...plus, kidding is one of the...
