Don't beat yourself up over it. Sometimes things happen so fast, we miss them.
Glad you are on top of things. ;)
Thank you, I feel bad dumping my responsibility while I was stuck in that darn wheelchair for 8 months.
I'm wigging especially with Minerva because she's so close to kidding and she's very special. Well, they all are really...It'll get fixed. Thanks for letting me vent y'all

She had copper on January 4th, I thought it would be too soon... should I give her a half dose (2gr) she only had 4gr. And is about 80lbs.
From what I have read...yes it would be totally fine to give her another 2 grams of copper

You are doing a great.job. Im sure Minerva will be ok. You found it early and are doing all you can. Be careful out there dont rush around!
Thanks, I got all 24 but two checked today and treated they Didn't all get hoof trims but I got them all CDT's and wormed if needed.
Everyone who had a 3 or below got wormed just in case. Hopefully, if we don't get rained out, my sons coming up to help get the electric netting set up out front so I can move them out there during the day, so their current pasture gets to be to burned off. Otherwise it's next weekend.

How do you give the copper in a Fig Newton? Break it open and smooch it all together or just shove the whole pill in there?
Cut the cookie open so the fig is like a plate. Open the capsule and pour the rods onto the fig, smoosh cookie back together..... Here goaty goaty goaty....works every time :)
