Welcome, Shannon.
Not sure whether Emil is your uncle or husband but sincere condolences just the same.
Really quiet round here with all of the chickens, ducks and geese gone but enjoying the goats and lamb immensely.
I love Alberta and the people there.
Love the big sky.
Peace from Vancouver Island.
Make the most of your new adventure.
Jim

Thanks so much. Emil was my Mom’s Boyfriend after 30 years and one of my best friends too! Thanks he is missed deeply.
I love Alberta too! Except our cold weather.
Nice to hear from you! I am absolutely enjoying my goats. It’s the muppet show here daily.!!! 😅😁😜

Hello Denise! Thanks for your kindness and help.
Our goats do look alike! Hopefully yours isn't as silly and busy like Ozzy. 😃

I have a question for everyone. My Buckling I bought is very sweet. I really only bought him with the intention of using him to breed and then sell him. Could I get him castrated and have him as a pet too? I want babies so he would be over a year old by the time I ever do castrate him. Is it safe? Would it be better during colder weather so the flies aren't an issue?

Your vet should be able to do the procedure for you as he will be older and not bandable.....waiting for the cooler temperatures is a excellent idea.less flies as you mentioned :thumbsup .
Would he need to be put under anesthesia or local freezing? I heard goats don't do well put under but I don't know?

We just had a buck put under and much to my surprise he did excellent ! When I expressed my concerns to the vet about putting him under, my vet told us that it was lidocaine that goats had a adverse reaction to....
After the vet removed Rockys horns he injected him with a reversal drug, took him five minutes to wake up, fifteen minutes later he walked with me to his area....
Worked slick !
