Your pictures are so nice. Its good to see the goats in the snow browsing! Hope you are feeling better!
Thanks! I took her temperature when she was limping really badly, and it was normal. I felt all up and down her leg and examined her hoof, couldn't find anything visibly wrong, like a cut or scrape, or a hoof issue. I'm pretty sure what happened was she just stepped in a hole or lost her footing in the deep snow, and twisted or sprained it. I was out there with them the whole time, and did not see that happen, but obviously , it still could have. The poor dear seems to be somewhat accident-prone.Oh no, sorry tohear about Pippi's leg. Keep an eye on her, maybe get her temperature, too.
Thanks! I'm excited! Now I'm scrambling to make sure I have all my kidding stuff together, as the Alpine's udder has filled considerably today, so I know she'll be going pretty soon. Hopefully, not before her due date. I would have preferred not to haul her this close to her due date, but the lady I bought them from lives 4 hours away from me, so it really wasn't doable to go back down there after she kidded. She's a calm doe, though, so I'm hoping all will be well. She seems to be settling in nicely.Very nice girls! So exciting..dont know.what you will.be getting! Congrats!
