    I called the vet. Nobody called me back. Im calling again today. I dont have a trailer so they will have to come to the house, but its worth it if they are sick. I can have them checked and vaccinated while the vet is there. I doubt the people who sold them to me did vaccinate them. People will tell you anything. Dont worry, Im not waiting, thats for sure!

    Oh... OK... Then I guess I'll not bother tagging you going fwd GB. No problem. If you've got it turned off, you'll never see if I do or don't, either way. Just make sure the vet you're calling is a "farm vet" and not a dog & cat only vet. I can totally identify with the no trailer conundrum...

    Talked to the vet finally. He told me just to keep an eye on them that he didnt think it was pneumonia. He is a large animal vet and I have used him before for my horse. Im hoping he is right.
