    Halleluiah! (aka "Not all lumps are bad lumps")

    My daughters made me a wee bit nervous when they came in from chores last night and reported that Electra had a lump on her jaw. They said it had been there for a couple of days, but they had forgotten to tell me. (And I, busy goat mom that I am, hadn't even noticed it myself. BAD goat mom!)

    Some of you may recall that I have had some unpleasant experiences with goats and cysts...

    Anyhoo, I went out this morning, massaged the evil lump of potential doom and, to my delighted surprise, she chewed it up and swallowed it. Apparently it was just a bit of hay or cud she'd been saving for a rainy day.
