Hi. I have twin bucklings who are 5 weeks old. About 24 hours after birth I noticed something was wrong with his ear. Vet came and took a look and said it was some kind of external infection. Started both on penicillin. The one that was really bad most of his ear is now gone. The vet came back out. Gave another shot of stronger antibiotics and some dust like topical antibiotics. We have been putting the topical on twice a day since they were a week old. I have attached some pictures could you please give me your experience. Vet did say I could use them for breeding. Thank you in advance.

You can definitely use him for breeding but some people may be put off by seeing a goat with a bad ear. I would make sure he is conformationally correct in every other manner if you are going to use him.
