Billy the kid (original I know) has been lounging around the last few days he's never been that spunky. But everytime I'm out there his relaxing, he didn't fight for grain today either just stood back. I checked his eyes normal color checked his tummy and massaged it ur felt normal. Poo owe and cud all normal. I gave him probiotics vit mix and wormed him just to be safe...(it's our towns country days and the roads are a mess). Anyways not sure if he's just going to be a layer back guy or not. His dad was pretty easy going anything I may have missed? Ill get a temp in the am when I have an extra set of hands

He's 4 mo. It was "hot" here today 85! He's seeks out attention from me like normal just calm his tail wags like normal. Yeah I need the temp I know maybe ill sneak back out and try to get one. My milk stand is almost done, it would have made it so much easier!

lol..it can be a challenge....straddle him facing his rear...squeeze your legs tight against his neck area..and then lift his tail...sometimes its easier to back up to a corner so he has no where to go...best of luck : )

awe..im sorry he isnt feeling well..if he is chilly..could be he has fever after all...Im not big on giving antibioitcs with our fever or infection..but if you cant get a temp..and he is chilly, lathargic, you know him best if he is off..I might go a head and treat with tyal 200 or Nuflor...
