    Haha Toth - I will take alot of pictures.

    I am really scared to leave as I have never left my animals for more then about 20 hours before. I have afriend who is going to stop by daily and check water, feed the dogs, and check on everyone - but I am still terrified to go. She knows horses real well - but goaties are so different and they are going to be so mad that I "deserted" them and don't come out twice a day!

    Well, we got home, did a head count and one was missing - found her - hanging from her head in the hay feeder - somehow got stuck. Thought that she was dead - it was my little nubian doeling - Firecracker. Her left front leg is fileted open in one spot pretty bad (to the bone - but going to try so get some suture or staples in the morning- about 3/4 inch long and 1/4 inch wide)- another small hole not worried about, and then a bad area that has many little wholes where she was rubbing trying to get herself out. She is weak in the back end. But doing good. She ate grain, about 20cc of yogurt, a little hay, and is standing. Walked her around to get the rumen going and it is moving. She received Pen inj, Vit B complex injection, Nutridrench. Also cleaned with Iodine flush, wrapped and flushed the leg. Leg is draining and no sign of infection yet. Temp is 102.0 but gum color and eye color is good. She is in the house in a kennel outside our bedroom so that we can hear any noise at all. Didn't want her to get to cold along with all this. But thank goodness this kind of thing I know what to do. That is where the vet nurse training comes in!!!!

    Other then that - awesome trip. We had a lot of fun and lots of stories to tell! Will upload pics later!

    I have a feeling Firecracker was teaching you a lesson in leaving them on their own :p
