Goats, gripes, and grasping for greatness
Cookie is fine now...

Apparently shearing Cookie-goat was the only thing needed to fix the horrible road rash and ooze on his chest. It's all dried up and gone now. The vet was amused at me.

He also recommended that I take Summer-goat's duct tape off this weekend. Unless she starts bleeding again, that's all for dealing with her broken horn. We may have to trim back some more splinters as the blood vessel retreats, but that will be on an as-needed basis.

Glad she is healing well. I have to admit this was/is my biggest fear the couple of times I have handled them. /shiver

This is only a fear for me with a bad grab on little goats, or on Summer goat. For everyone else, it's like I just grabbed them by the skull.

Glad to hear things settled back down again. I'm a medic and the broken horn made me cringe! Ow!

As the vet said, it's the BIG version of cutting the quick on a dog's nail. Once you stop the bleeding, the blood vessel will retract from the cut end and it will seal itself.
