    Found Sheep

    This morning, we saw animal control trying to catch a sheep. We helped them and she is safely in one of our goat pens away from my goats. I live in the suburbs and I don’t know anyone who has sheep. It’s not impossible for someone to have sheep- I have seen horses and plenty of chickens in...

    Advice on Getting 3yr Old Buck Dehorned

    Hey y'all! I bought a buck with horns and am wanting to get him dehorned. I called the vet's office (they have about 12 vets there) and the first vet I spoke with told me it would most likely go very well and that the chances of complications were low. So, I saved back some money and when I...

    Raw Cow's Milk Okay?

    One of my does kidded quads early this morning. I knew beforehand that I'd have to take all but two kids if she had that many because she does not have the capacity to support more than two. I did milk/ have been milking her colostrum and bottle feeding it to the two kids I took. It won't be...

    Parasite Problem?

    Howdy y'all! A few weeks ago, I noticed that two of our bottle babies (and I wouldn't doubt if the other two had it, as well. One's white & the other is gold/white, so it's harder to tell) have small white 'specks ' in groups on their head and neck/ shoulder areas. They've got a few of these...
