The vet came yesterday afternoon for tests and health papers for Ria, Lerris, Justin and Madison. Because of the possibility that Justin may / certainty that Madison will stay in NY, I had to have them tested for TB. The vet will come back on Friday to read those test results. Also, the planned purchasers of Madison requested that he receive a CD&T booster. I dewormed and deloused all four goats (and their various pasture-mates as necessary). They need pedicures still, and then they will be all set for the trip.
As an aside... the vet was astonished at the good condition of our pastures. (I think they look terrible, but I've been informed otherwise.) I explained to him that we've been haying the goats since the rains stopped back in June, and we try really hard not to overgraze anyway because of parasite issues with the goats and erosion issues with the ground.
