    The vet took fecal samples from all nine of our other goats last week. The results should be in soon.

    I think Matilda's previous owner is going to run fecals on her goats too, so we can see if Matilda picked up the worms at our farm or hers.

    It takes like 15 minutes to do a fecal... I would think you'd have your results by now. :hu

    On Friday the 16th of June, Matilda started looking and acting a lot better. She was eating more, starting to take a bigger interest in her grain, and she looked more filled out - her sides weren't as sunken in. She is still too thin, but is definitely on the road to recovery!

    A week or two ago the fecal results on all of our goats (except for Geoffrey) came in:

    Cap, Harriet & Sage - very high worm load (Barber Pole)
    Annie, Melody, Hildy & Midge - some worms (Barber Pole), but not a lot
    Verity, Benji & Matilda - NO worms! Hurray!!

    Below are some pictures of Matilda from today, and of Geoffrey & their two Nubian buddies (these were taken yesterday).

    Kind of odd that the super skinny one isn't wormy.

    she's putting on weight, I thought she was already treated and that's why she is putting on a little weight.. it is weird
