Goat drama

In the same week that the orphaned kittens were found, Erin’s goat “Dolly” got pneumonia and coccidia.  She was take off her mother and given to us and had a little cold.  Well the stress was too much for her and she wound up in the vet clinic overnight on IV’s.  Cheryl, the woman who sold her to us, was amazingly helpful and let us have the mamma goat until Dolly got back on her feet.  So for a few weeks our backyard looked like this:

All the goats needed to be treated for Coccidea so right off the bat we got experience in givng shots and medicine to the animals. IMG_3260

Not new for Chris who has helped with sheep for years, but new for Erin and I.  Emily did not like taking her medicine and is  hiding!

All is well now and Dolly is re-weaned from her mamma.  She did cry like crazy all over again!
