Went out to feed this evening and found one of our eight week old babies with her back left leg broken. The break was straight across the diameter of the bone, just above her lower joint. I'm thinking it's her growth plate. Both our vets were out of town, so I had no choice but to set it myself. I used the plaster fabric that you wet and wrap around the break. Got it as straight as we possibly could, actually I don't see how it could be any straighter. It's hardened up now and she's up eating hay, obviously not putting any weight on it but not dragging it around either. She weighs 27 lbs so I gave her .27 cc of banamine which seems to have helped. Spoke to the vet long distance and he'll be back tomorrow so I'm going to get her in there early so he can xray it and see if my handiwork has done any permanent damage. OF COURSE, it's one who's already sold and just waiting to finish weaning before she goes to her new home. Crap..... I've never dealt with breaks before. This kid season hasn't been fun all things considered, one of my boys who's great buck potential insists on regrowing horns. Not scurs, horns. I've burned him three times and can't do it again. Too big. He's going to have to be surgically dehorned or get banded and sold as a pack goat or into a horned herd or something. I need a vacation!
