    Re: Today was a GREAT day!

    well, we went to take pics last night of Abba, and of course the batteries were dead - but he was nervous too, so I just gave him loves, trimmings, vaxs, worming, and sent him to the girls.

    But today I have charged batteries - mmmuuuuaaaahhhhhh - he is in for it now! LOL!


    The other thing that I didn't mention last night when I did this thread (scared of jinxing myself) was that Luna, my brown mastiff, had her spay yesterday - which isn't a big deal - BUT this was the first surgery on any of my animals that I was not the surgical nurse for - let alone not even in the building. And on top of it, she is the same exact age as my Bordeaux mastiff that we lost from GVD. SOOOOO - I was a nervous wreck.

    Well, we got to the vet to pick her up - and found out that she almost didn't make it through surgery. She lost ALOT of blood. Had bleeders in there that they were having difficulty finding and stopping - and they were concerned. My friend vet is the one who did the surgery for me and that is the ONLY reason they didn't send her to Pet Emergency for the night to be monitored and let me bring her home. So all night last night I was paniced and was up every hour checking on her - temp, CRT, incision, abdomin palpating for blood pooling. It was a nightmare.

    But this morning she is doing well - so I feel comfortable talking about it :)

    Will bring pics soon!

    welcome home Abba!

    As to moonspots on Abba -- he is a buckskin so no those are just part of his buckskin pattern. As to the doe... possibly -- depends on what pattern she is.


    Poor Luna, I am so glad things worked out well for her though and for you. :hug:

    Carmel is a cutie :love:

    Abba has settled in very nicely and I do think that Dora will be giving you twins...Caramel looks like he's smiling in those pics and he looks to have grown very nicely in the last year.

    Oooh, I love Abba!! :love: Is that raw skin on the back of his front legs?? Did he pee too much on himself or something? Kinda gross. ;) But he still so very handsome. Love the rear leg set on that boy, verrry nice!

    Caramel looks pretty long but if I were you, Abba would be #1 man in the herd. But it is all up to you in the end. :) You will do what is best for your goaties and your program.

    Olivia,

    You know - I trimmed his hooves, felt him all over last night, and was in the barn with him, and never noticed it - but I will go out and check again - cause now I feel horrible if I didn't notice it...... I will let you know.

    The ONLY reason I didn't like Joy's udder (caramels dam) was that it didn't seem to fill all the way this last pregnancy, but I think it was a nutritional thing, cause I had one other that was older and "experienced" do the same thing. I talked to a couple of Joy's previous owners and all of them said that she had had an awesome udder for them - so maybe it was the hay at the time??? I know it was not the best, but until cutting, that was all that was around here...... but we will see!

    I am not settling on bringing home Caramel. I just got a call from a lady that I sold China to - BEAUTIFUL first time udder..... well, come to find out - Joe got to her before she left and she is uddering up big time! I told her to call me as soon as the kids are born as I want first dibs!!! So we will see!

    Oh, don't feel bad if you may have missed it. Maybe it's just the pic though? Or the lighting, I don't know. . . .

    That is great that Joe has more babies on the way! So, maybe that worked out for the best anyways? As to the doe not giving a lot of milk. How many babies did she have? What time of year? Some does will not produce the highest amount of milk in a fall or winter freshening but will produce more in the spring.

    She typically would have quads - and this time gave twins. It was in September. I really think that she had them early. I had put a young ram that was going to butcher in with her overnight so that it would be easier to grab him in the morning to load him up because he was not tame at all. When we got home that night we had two tiny twins on the ground and dry and no udder! She produced enough for them but that was it.

    I will let you know when I go out - what I find with Abba. I have lots of Petroleum Jelly that I can put on it if it is pee burn!
