    Too pricey?

    For a buck I would go with papered, I made the mistake with taking an unreg buck now, am changing over because it is too limiting. I would still buy a nice unreg doe but not a buck, remember your buck is half your herd's genetics. :old

    Advice needed prior to purchasing a LGD

    I'll take a stab at your questions. Southern has been such a valuable source of information and support to me and my two Pyrs so I hope I don't contradict anything she advises here. First of all, I love the Great Pyr breed with children, I have 4 kids under 7, and they have grown up around the...

    oh that temp is telling isn't it....sounds like you are on the right course. not sure on the needle size, I would think smaller would be easier, goats are pretty sensitive with injections.

    Boer Kid Not Herself - Fast Heart Rate

    I have also had good luck with this recipe in treating scours and buying time against the cocci bug. Worth making even if you don't have the slippery elm although it coats the tummy and settles it, but the other herbs in the tea stop the really does work. You can try: 1 tea...

    Boer Kid Not Herself - Fast Heart Rate

    Yup, while you are there get the prevention cocci additive. Taken from Fiasco Farms website: "After some research, I found that, though many people use Corid (amprolium), but it dose not work as well as Sulmet (sodium sulfamethazine) or Albon (sulfadimethoxine). I decided to try Sulmet 12.5%...

    Boer Kid Not Herself - Fast Heart Rate

    how are her poops? temp?I would just give homo milk with some probiotics or full-fat plain yogurt mixed in. lots of people have troubles with kid milk replacer and find regular milk is much easier on their tummies, you don't need the condensed milk with is the pricey part. I would also be...

    Found my Gold & White Doeling

    I have been on the prowl for a registered sweet gold & white Nigerian doeling and today we found her! Now we just have to wait for her to be weaned, which is going to be sooo hard. We chose the name Saffron Spice, so full name will be Happy Hoof's Saffron Spice. Our first goat this year we...

    UGHH - some people grrr!

    I can't believe what I am reading on this local kijiji ad. Someone advertising their "unmatched genetics" anatolian shepard that later on admits is crossed with malamute and lab. Has had two litters and advertising as "next litter will be outrageous". Then selling because she wants her to go to...

    Sweet goat that is difficult to milk

    Does she have small orifices? as in small holes where the milk comes from? I milked one last year for a month that had small orifices but it was hardly worth it as it just too WAAAY too long to fill up the pail. Some are just genetically made with small holes and they don't make great milk...

    help choosing a dairy breed please

    whatever you choose, just make sure you look into the lines you are getting them from. Some Nubians will produce 1 liter a day, some 5 or 6 liters a day. Same goes with any breed, it is worth getting them from a source that you know is breeding for milk production not colours or pets.
