Hi everyone! I have finally registered with the site after a long wait to see what happened w/ goatweb. I have changed my name to Pine River. ( aka: MissMelissa on GW) I am happy to see that a lot of old friends have made it to the goat spot. All is fairly quiet at my place, the goats are keeping warm in the barn even w/ this cold snap. My one little kid has grown into a pretty little thing and I am getting' ready to breed one of my 3 does (nigerians) for a spring kidding. To be truthful the last several months have been really low key w/ the goats except this morning I went to the barn to feed and my favorite girl has somehow gotten the runs. It took just a few quick minutes of realizing my goat care skills were not exactly fresh in my head so I thought it would be a good time to have a little backup advise if I cannot get control of her ailment by myself. It is a good feeling to know I have advise just a click away. So far I have given her a dose of pepto bismal, and if that doesn't do the trick I will find my slippery elm and try that. So, again, it is great to be back on a forum, especially in the dead of winter when I have not too many other things going on right now. If anyone has any suggestions on what else I should do for my lil goat please feel free to share. Thanks all!
