They really got my goat!

Forum rules
As per Ferrier1987: You are supposed to post pictures when you post about your baby goats. Its a rule here. I just made it up as a rule, but its now part of the forum rules I have decided.

Little off the subject, but just listening to a US broadcast why the flu vaccine missed this year?
The targeted virus had difficulties growing in the egg base, so it mutated to make the growth more successful, but then it was no longer the original targeted virus.
Blows my mind completely

Things really looking up. Went out to feed Cleo her bottle and she wasn't very hungry. Some investigation says that one side of Priya's has most likely been partially drained. That would be great if there was no more bottle feeding! Will keep going tonight and tomorrow and see.

Good to hear it’s all working out. I know when I had problems like this with my sheep if I fed the lamb a bit less so it was hungry it would figure out pretty quickly where the rest of the meal comes from!

So going as anticipated I think. Milk volume going up. Getting 1 3/4L twice a day now. Bottle feeding Cleo. Disbudded this morning. I know it hurt her, but 30 seconds after I let her go, It was like nothing had changed for her. Jumping and kicking about. Looking for me, following me. It amazes me, if someone did that to me, they would NOT be my friend ever again.

Something I have never seen before. You know how a mother hen drops food in front of the chicks and shows it what to eat? Well Priya the other day took one kernel of corn out of her feed dish and dropped it in front of Cleo. I have never seen anything but a chicken do that. Amazed me.

Teach them about the milking stand early. Priya and Cleo.
