Goat vet appt.

I canceled Toby and Theo's wethering appointment, but kept the actual appointment so that the vet could see Goldie's udder. The final verdict was "well, keep an eye on it." but don't do anything right now. The issue is that last Saturday during shearing, Goldie got nicked by the shearer on the udder. The little cut on the backside of her right teat has gotten ... ugly. However, there is no infection inside the glands (the milk is still flowing and is still clean), so obviously the nick was only surface and not into the duct. Unfortunately, because of where the wound is, little baby goat teeth are irritating it multiple times a day. However, if I put anything on it, it will probably drive the kid off of that teat, and then we will have a milk problem.
