    I could really use the help of a local goat person. I have a buckling born March 19th that needs to be disbudded. I ordered a disbudding iron a few weeks ago, but there was apparently a mix-up with my order and I won't be getting it now for another two weeks, long past when this little boy needs to be disbudded. I took my other kids to a person who charged me $20 a kid and I had to drive 2hrs each way with all my goats in my van to get there. Needless to say, I don't want to do that again! I don't mind paying a fee, even a $20 fee at this point since I need to get this done asap. Is there anyone who can help me out? I live in Pomona but I can drive somewhere without a problem.

    If there isn't anyone who can do it for me, is there anyone who could loan me their iron for an afternoon? I could come pick it up and return it within an hour drive of me. Please?!

    If no one here is close to you, you can always try Craigs list or if you have a freecycle you can ask on there too. Check with your local feed stores too. Hope you find someone quick.
