    I posted a while back about some does that I had that were just not growing. We had dewormed them aggressively and put them on calf manna. They had been quarantined for 3 or 4 months. I was a little hesitant about putting them with the herd and having to compete for food, but they are actually doing much better.
    This was the doeling that looked the worst when we got her.

    And this is her last week. I doubted that she would ever make it over 75 pounds, we weighed her yesterday and she is 79 pounds.

    Thanks. Believe it or not she is 6 or 7 months in the first photo (so you can see why we thought she was yonger!). Our 2 1/2 month old bucklings are bigger! Shes 1 year old in the next photo. We did finally decide that we are going to sell her, shes not going to fit into our plans for a show herd, she'd be better of in a commercial herd or just a pet. We were just waiting until she was looking good and put on some more weight, and also to register her. I am still debating on the one doe that is her half sister and was the quadruplet, I'd like to see how she matures a bit more. And the other red doe, I am pretty sure my mother in-law wants as a pet.

    WOW! If not for the head markings, you wouldn't be able to convince me that was the same doe! Very nice job with her. :applaud: She looks amazing!

    Some people actually like the smaller does because they are less maintainance(so I've heard, lol).
    But I think thats in more of a commercial operation.

    You've done a lovely job with her though! She looks great!
