    We brought our goats home today. Two three year old sisters are named Shamrock (looks painted) and Treasure (orange and white). Blizzard (black and white) doeling will be 13 weeks old tomorrow. April May (tan, black, brown) is 12 weeks old and looks like a deer. Our two bucklings are very interested. Leprechaun is acting awfully buck-like, and I believe he’s an early bloomer. He’s 15 weeks.

Had trouble uploading. I don’t know if we’ll call the one April or Bambi. Maybe Bambi as a nickname? 6D464358-5945-4AAB-A85B-327C6B071EE4.jpeg

    We thought Shamrock was going to be incredible shy, but I’ve been able to get her and Treasure to eat out of my hand and let me touch them. She even let me pet down her back just a bit ago. She looks at me very curiously. Wonder if she might blossom into a friendly goat here now that she is part of a small herd. Also...Treasure has started coughing occasionally...her breeder gave her an antibiotic, cdt vaccine, and dewormer because she was worried about stress from moving affecting health. Fingers crossed it’s gone tomorrow. So far, we have terramycin, sulfadimethoxine, and Corid on hands as medications in our first aid kit so far. Slowly buying more things.

    Since the breeder already gave the antibiotic you should finish the round of it. ;/. Same med and dose as breeder gave. Lovely lil herd! Your bucklings are separated from the girls yes?

    Oh that's perfect! Blizzard looks IDENTICAL to one of our doelings. We named her McFlurry Great minds think alike.

    They share a fence line with the two adults until we build the boys a pen farther away. Hopefully we will have that done soon.

    Haha! Maybe we’re not as original as we think. Yeah, that’s also why the pen she’s in got the igloo shelter! I saw her at the breeder’s and knew what I’d name her immediately.

    Raw whole garlic cloves are great to strengthen the immune system and help with coughs. You can also do freshly squeezed garlic in a treat.

    YES those blue eyes and frosted ears . That's my boy, Jorge. My first day working at the farm, he had me wrapped around his hoof.

    Thanks! I was all prepared in my head for Shamrock to be near wild based on how she was at the breeder and how they talked about her...but I am proud to say they are all eating out of my hand, coming up to me, and letting me pet them. The adults really like getting brushed. Shamrock is actually more friendly than her sister. I think without a giant herd, they are looking to people for more attention. I’m falling more in love with her every hour. I have a feeling she’s going to be my buddy.
