a preponderance of punctuation marks

Niiiiice day! I saw sheep, played with goats, etc.

I visited the sheep (Jake and Brain) this morning. Jake came trotting right up to me. I'm so proud! He probably doesn't remember me, but he's still so incredibly friendly. I was also rub-loved by a big alpine doe, who made me very popular with the rescue dogs at the pet store later.

I dewormed all of the goats today and dosed all the kids with Corid to stop the evil coccidia from stunting their growth. Note that Sashimi, Toby and three or four of the kids were really pale.

Edit: The plan is actually a 7-day regime in the drinking water for all the goats. The kid-dosing was to kick-start it because they are still drinking milk and I want to be sure that the dosage is sufficient to kill most of the coccidia, not just help the pests build up resistance.
