I put this in the wrong place-sorry!

The first pictures are of Trip, I was wondering if she is overly fat, possibly preggers, or just right...I think she looks bigger then what the pictures show, all she gets is hay, and minerals :)

Second pic is of Franky- our newest addition!!! I was told he was pygmy but when I saw him I thought Nigerian Dwarf- am I right ? He is soo tiny! and sweet and really stinky!!!

I would like to worm him, with the stress of moving,.. I have Ivomec plus, is that okay to give him.. Orally at 1 cc per 25 lbs. ?


Also I would like to thank you guys for being such great people! This site is honestly a life saver for me. I know you probably get tired of me posting lol but I have so much to learn still, I never thought it was ever this complicated. Your all so helpful and always nice about it. So thanks again! Have a wonderful day :)

Ivomec + is just fine to use on Franky. Dose him again 10 days leter to take care of new hatch.
She looks preg to me but admit not used to looking at the smaller breeds. Trip is very pretty!
Squishy tail, fat pocket by elbows & having a hard time finding ribs are ways of determining if they are fat.

Franky is ABSOLUTELY a ND mix. Trip I'm not sure about because that's just what my Pygmy looks like all the time. :)

The buck is a Nigerian Dwarf. If the doe has fat pockets by her shoulders, she is overweight.

I thought he was :)

I can feel her ribs, her tail isn't squishy and no fat pocket.. But I was told she hadn't been around a buck.. -- but people lie-- I put Franky in with her, and he wanted nothing to do with her, sniffed her butt once and walked away.

How long ago did you buy her?

I was told on the fat front that it is similar to people - if you can pinch an inch right behind the elbows on the side, they are on the heavy side.

I have had her around a month, maybe a little longer :)
