Golden Ears (buck) who went to the vet and was diagnosed with septic arthritis is very hard to get to feed off his mum. We made a small mobile milking device which his mum now happily hops onto and even fits her horns between the rails! Amazing in only a week or so. She will now stand anywhere, so I can sit in my chair and attach bub. Goats are amazing! Golden ears is still on antibiotics and is slowly getting better, however I have to open his mouth to attach him to mum. It is a bit of a battle to get the teat in his mouth, but once he gets going he does all right. However, he is very stiff in the legs and actually pushes himself backwards. He does now get under mum and search for the udder but never seems to find it (hope he will in time). But could anyone please suggest how and what might be the cause of this behaviour? He keeps his legs rigid when starting, and it is a chore to get him going. After a while he pushes off (he may have just had enough). I have milked mum after he has finished and he must be getting a good feed, but it is just the fact it requires me to hold him there. I loosen my gentle hold after a while and he sucks on, but he rolls around and is stiff and then pushes away. He is going to be a cuddly adult!
