    I'm an Alpine girl all the way, so I'm probably not going to be much help :lol: I have dealt
    with all the breeds mentioned, though Obers not as extensively. If you're going purely for
    attitude, you're...

    when to breed. I too like Feb kidding. LOL. ;)Yes, they are absolute brats when in heat -

    So, I guess I shouldn't say I have the exact feeder in the link (it's metal and a bit smaller)
    but it is based off the same design. :) I apologize if any of this is confusing or absolute
    gibberish, I'...

    Can you post a pic of them? Inside and out? So, you can bring the outside ones in? :laugh:
    Maybe I am misunderstanding, but that sounds cool!I would love to, but my camera actually

    Wow - glad I'm not the only one who has does cycling like crazy right now! The entire herd went
    into heat within days of each other. They drove the poor bucks into a lather! I'll be breeding

    Okay. Ranger1, would you mind giving me the name of the group the info was posted in? I
    searched through all of mine and came up blank. I would assume the keywords "frozen assets"
    would make any posts...

    Oh, and the hayrack designs mentioned work great. :) They did help reduce waste when I first
    put them out in the pens, both for my does and the up-and-coming bucks.

    Our problem seems to be a TON of hay left in the hay bag. It doesn't get pulled out onto the
    floor, but they just leave a lot of it sitting there.. I've gotten into the habit of completely
    emptying it...

Hey there!
I'm in Bastrop and was wondering who you use as a vet

@arielmadison Hey! :) I use Dr. Amanda Kowalski at the Belton Vet Clinic in Belton, TX - it's a bit of a drive, but it's well worth it. Highly recommend them; they're super helpful and reasonable priced. Dr. Kowalski is also one of the very few vets I've found who knows what she's doing with caprines, too.
I've also heard good stuff about the folks at A&M. :)

Hope this helps! Good luck!
