I dont have favorites, i really dont... but she is so adorable and cute and i cant help myself. i brought her home at 8 weeks and then she spent another month in the barn with a couple other kids. She is now out with all the kids in the pen(10 total). She is the smallest. fine bone, tiny girl. she eats great but just doesnt have the bulk that the other kids have. i know when i buy outside kids they always seem to take awhile to grow compared to the "home" grown ones. she has been on toltrazuril every 21 days since she seems to not have resistance yet. her eye lids are nice and pink. she gets bullied but seems to be able to handle it and if not she runs to her buckling friend who is twice her size and eats by him. (he is a month older but brought him home the same time).

im really hoping to figure out the microscope this week since i get a few days off and check for worm eggs. i think im going for the sugar solution and i dont have one of those spinner things but think i can check without one.

none of my kids have been dewormed yet. i wasnt sure if there was a point since they are in the same pen and i cant move them yet to a "clean" pen. Everyone else though looks healthy.

okay so not so good... she somehow got out(only thing i can think is the gate wasnt all the way shut and being so small she squeezed thru) and the dog decided to play with her. i didnt notice anything until my hubby went out and the dog wasnt on the porch. luckily the dog is still in the grab by the shoulders and slobber all over and not the killing part(i am so hoping she would get over this, very frustrating, this doeling doesnt run away from things so it might of helped). anyways, she seems fine and was quite happy to see me. after looking her over i didnt feel anything except lots of slobber. so now she has diarrhea bad, she was given toltrazuril yesterday. b complex today and prob., she is nibbling at the food. i know its from the stress and thinking she has a worm bloom so i have quest or ivermectrin, she is 3-4 months old and never been dewormed. im guessing she is 10 pounds but will weigh her tomorrow, she may be 15.
plan on more prob when i get home this evening and get some dark beer tomorrow and another b complex shot.

she is back to herself again. I ended up giving her ivermectrin as her diarrhea wasn't getting better and she was loosing what condition she had. within a day or two she firmed up and now has pellets. I also treated her with toltrazuril twice instead of every 21 days since I figured she had abloom with coccidia too. The positive about bottle babies is they love anything out of a syringe:)
