Figured I may as well put up everyone I've lost from this year (second year raising goats, only year we've had anything die) First, Eli, a $20 pygmy buckling we bought in October of '09. His collar got caught in our doe's horns (something they'd done and gotten loose from many times) and snapped his neck. He was mostly wild, but an absolute sweetheart when you had hold of him. The next goat we lost was Tag, in June, from liver fluke. We were treating for bottlejaw at the time, and never even thought of using Ivomec Plus. Lenore (below) died a week later from the same thing, and possibly because she missed Tag too much. They were very attached (she was pure saanen, I don't know where the red came from) Them pictured together, a month before they died. Then there was Billy, a free buck to replace Tag. He was attacked and eaten by 3 dogs, one of which was killed when they tried the same move on a bull. How Jenny survived, I still don't know. He was her half brother and, being raised together before I got the two of them, he loved nursing off of her. He was 5 months old. Lastly, Eclypse, an American Alpine. She wasn't in great shape when we got her, she had gotten back from a horse farm, where she was being milked for an orphan foal. The 2nd day we had her, she got enterotoxemia, and 8 days later, when she was finally improving, she snapped her neck rolling on a rock under the porch.
