Vet papers... and on with the show!

The vet came out on Friday to bless the subset of the herd that is off to the show this weekend. He said that they all looked good, and agreed that Apollo was a fine hunk of studly yearling goat.

We had an amusing moment when Loki's runny nose caused the vet to stop and check his lungs. I was holding Loki's head, and Loki was loving me by rubbing his head down my leg. The vet exclaimed "He's got really heavy pneumonia in this lung!" and moved to check the other side. "But this side is clear!... Let me check the other side again." It turned out that Loki was basically snoring and the noise was rumbling back into his lungs because of Loki's head being bent down toward my knee just as the vet was listening to his lungs. Loki's head was at the top of his love-rub arc when the vet switched back, and presto- instant cure!

The show is this coming weekend in Frederick, MD. Wheee!
