    Dottie, my boer doe with the awful bumps that keep coming back, went back to the vet today as she had a bad bump breakout on Saturday. The vet decided to do a couple of punch biopsies and send it to Davis.
    Well she did a local then started to take the biopsies. The spots chosen for the biopsy were on the tail base to one side. The vet said that it would only take a minute.
    But guess what happens when you touch a goats tail, who is being held against a wall and is not a happy camper as her owner holds her collar and her tail at the same time. Her tail wags at 200 miles per hour.
    So 20 minutes later the vet finally got the biospies and had put a stitch in each spot. She kept saying that it would help if she would just hold her tail still. Wag wag wag til the tail's a blur. Her last comment was that she thought it would be easy. Ah the tales of the goat...........

    Well Dottie would have certianly run like a deer had she not been held by her mom-she basically could only go a few inches or so- oh the indignity of it all. I told the vet before she started that I would shave the tail- she said no but everytime she brushed a tail hair, the tail wagged like an egg beater.
