    Congratulations! That is wonderful news!

    Did you draw yourself or did you have a vet do it?

    I did the blood draw myself for the first time :dance: I only got 1cc of blood from Daisy and threw it in the trash. Thankfully I had it wrapped up separately because someone on here(I feel bad that I can't remember now who) suggested to send it in anyway. I'm soooo glad I listened because it paid off and I don't have to poke her again.

    Looks like I'm going to need to try that....is it very hard to do? I'd love to have mine tested...but with tight $ I'd only be able to do a few at a time.

    I had Ashely show me how and out of 4 goats I only did one :oops: I was to scared to do it.

    As to how easy - you need two people thats for sure

    I wouldn't say it was very hard to do. It took me 3 pokes with the first goat, 2 pokes with the second and waaaaay too many pokes with the third. I won't even tell you how many times I poked the third :( I felt really bad. I'm just glad they had enough serum in that 1cc I sent in for the third. I would definitely try it yourself before I'd pay the vet to do it. I put my goats in the stanchion while my husband held their necks up for me. I saved a lot of money doing it myself :)
