@greybeard - dang it - you're gonna force me to go make some. I haven't made 'em in years - way back when I was married into a Czech family. It's been awhile, but once a baker...

Gotta go find some poppy seed filling. Nope, I don't make that part from scratch. If I can actually get myself to follow through I'll probably make prune too...maybe apricot. Spring break is next week, my granddaughter wants to do some baking - no more excuses I guess.

Ok this kid (goat kid lol) is driving me nuts he so goofy. He can walk and stand, I walked over to him and he goes spread eagle and refuses to stand he apparently wanted to be picked up and feed. This morning he refused to eat more then two oz because he wanted to lay in my lap and nap.... He so lazy and laid back compared to his mother and her sister when they we younger its night and day.

I just got done feeding the buckling and I noticed that both his eyes are cloudy like he has cataract very mild ones but yeah does that mean he is bind I mean I seen him follow and go to my kids maybe he mildly blind. I shinned a light in his eyes one side didn't seem to react to much the other side the entire eyelid went wider like.... As far as I know we aren't selelium deficient I could be wrong my phone be acting up so when I try to look it freaks out... I do provide loose minerals that does have selelium and they do get valf manna in the grain mixture I give them as well. Thoughts?

Most of the time he eats pretty well and attacks the bottle. It's only maybe one bottle that he barely drinks. Thats normally if I interrupt his nap time lol. But It depends how much the vets going to charge. I plan on trying to get him seen the amount for the visit isn't bad just concerned on how much treatnent will cost.

Can you post any photos? Does he have a temp?

Could it be pinkeye? I had one goat get it and she got a cloudy eye that was soon fixed up with treatment.

Give me a bit and I go out and take some. Putting kids down for nap/quite time also pasteurizing milk. I have some pink eye antibiotic somewhere I used it for the rabbits when they had it. It's starts with a t if I can find it do you think that will work I have to find it to spell it correctly but I can get more from the feed store its for goats as well.
