    I was doing chores yesterday morning when I noticed one of my dwellings had a swollen face, I tossed her in a spectate pen for a few hours to see if maybe she had just popped her jaw out, however when I got back she has built up quite a bit of foam around her mouth/nose, I gave her a unit of...

  7. Goat Frenzy
    So, not too long ago I raised my first bottle baby up to weaning age before letting him loose with the other goats. If you've been on my profile before, you should know Cow and Smokey's story. It was pretty much the same with him, except he was the only kid that made it. Funny thing, Cow and...

    We have this goat who was a bottle baby. About 2-3 months ago she went into heat and was getting chased by the boys. We locked her in our yard as we felt she was to small to have kids. But now I think she’s pregnant but can’t tell. We don’t want her pregnant mainly because of being small and...

    I just discovered a tumor on his chest. It's very hard and larger than a softball. His fur is such that it was very difficult to see and he's a bit squirrelly and doesn't like you to touch him. Any idea what this might be? I have a horse vet coming out to my house on Friday but he has to be...

    Good afternoon everyone, I am having a heck of a time understanding the ADGA guide on tattooing my goats. I was assigned my tattoo GB57, which is all well and good, but then the guide talks about assigning tattoos based on year and birth order. I believe their example was M for 2020 and 1,2,3...

    Hi everyone. So one of my pet wethers has been acting weird. My first fear was UC, but I watched him out on the field for a bit and he went twice as normal and didn’t show signs of distress. He’s twitching his tail, running around a lot, and keeps stomping and raising his legs up and kicking...

    Hi, I’m new here and have a huge problem. So my 1.5 Month old baby goat is doing terribly, she didn’t receive any colostrum from when she was born because she was a bit premature and her mother barely had any milk. I’ve been bottle feeding her ever since. At first she was fine then she got a...

    Found an old packet of White Dutch Clover seeds for deer plots when going through some old bins. Can I plant this and let the goats eat it? Has anyone tried it? I read in a few places that it was poisonous, but in others that it is safe.
