Picked up my future Alpine-Stars.

Bigger guy is 2 months, smaller guy is 1 month. He has a bit of diarrhea - trying some plain yogurt in his milk and will pick up some Albon. I am making a gradual change from goat to raw cow's milk as well, so the upset could be anything.

They have been kept in a flat little pen until now, nothing to climb on - the big tire filled w/ straw is a challenge for them. They are a bit remedial! They did well on a little walk around the yard today, though.

These are the first kids I've let myself get attached to. Boy, that was fast.

(Next year I should try wearing more makeup and less duct tape :lol: )

Thanks for looking!

Great looking kids Gitzo! They're a hoot. Sorry to hear about the digestive issues. A lot of us have had great luck with the whole milk formula posted by Carolyn (whole cow's milk with canned milk and buttermilk--I think).

Have fun! JD

Thanks! :D They really are a barrel of fun.

Ali, they are American Alpines. Neat colors compared to the rest of our goaty herd.

The little guy's diarrhea is gone now, I think the yogurt did the trick.
