Poor Muffin has a sore teat. I guess with 3 little savages attacking it is bound to happen. I have been treating her a couple of times a day and putting a nice udder balm on her sore. She isn't wanting the babies to nurse so I had to put her on the stand and hold her leg. I felt really bad, but they won't take a bottle and I was worried as I hadn't seen them eating. She let them eat with some persuasion. Thankfully they are eating hay, fresh grass growing in the field, and drinking some water so they are fine during the day. I'm sure she will be relived when it is weaning time. All I can say is "I'm glad I'm not a goat." :)
Well this Spring has been a busy one for sure. This is my first kidding season and I have been blessed greatly. So far all the births have gone smoothly and I have healthy momma's and babies. I have been blessed with 7 beautiful little girls and 2 gorgeous little bucks. They are so much fun to watch play or just go out and snuggle. Today I met with the nice family that will be purchasing Muffin's two little girls. I couldn't be more happy with the home they will be going to. The little girls had a great time playing with the goats and are excited to get them home. Sure makes it easier when you know your babies will be loved.
