    she's fine 100% :leap:
    the vet checked her over and she even has sight in her eye again
    well...
    ...she runs and plays with the other kids but she doesn't climb on the toys like they do...

    thanx y'all
    i am soooooooooo proud of my kids
    we ended up with 19 blues
    7 purples
    3 trophies (1 each - goat, rabbit, chicken)
    1 red
    for their first year they did great!!!!

    i have someone that wants to buy clover (grand champ in her lcass) and i really really need to downsize for financial reasons but i really want to keep her
    she was always my favorite in the looks department as far as mini nubian goes
    i don't know what to do...?...

    never sell your favorite ---- you will regret it later. Talk from experience! Plus for what she is you will want those genetics why sell something you will end up paying to get later? :shrug:
