Annual goat vet visit 
12th-Feb-2015 06:33 pm
The vet came out today for the annual vaccinations and to sonogram the two new goats for possible kids. I'm sad to say that both new goats are, in fact, pregnant. I'm sad to say this because 1) the new little goat is *very* small and 2) I have no clue when either of them might kid (besides "not this week").

Aside from that and a natural concern about Summer being nothing but a fur rug over an animated bone rack, the vet said my goats look good. No one was coughing, and only a few tender toes. I need to deworm the usual suspects again, so I'll try to get to them ASAP.

I had two gals from knit night out to see how it's done with goats. The one who is planning to start her own fiber farm soon was astonished at how brusque we were as compared to the alpaca people. Comparatively speaking, goats aren't as fragile or have nearly as finicky [American] health care as alpacas.

Also - I have to mention that knitting group is amazing for my peace of mind. Yestday's work was soooo frustrating, and going to knit group made me feel a lot better/calmer about it.

Thanks for the question. I updated my post to link back to the story... Short answer is a woman was getting rid of all of her goats, and gave me two of them just before Christmas.
