    So I sold a whole bunch and only have 3 goats to go before I am down to 29 goats!! and those goats are sold just waiting to be picked up YAY!!! OF course I am sure that I will end up getting a couple more lol, but I am down to my goal! We are going to hold on to these 29 and see what babies they produce in the spring. If I dont like their udders or just dont like the way their babies look I will probably get rid of them. My goal is to actually be down to like 20 GREAT animals with excellent bloodlines. but we will see how that goes. so here is who I have....sorry this list is gonna be long!!

    It was hard gettin rid of them but like you said once I did it was nice when it was over. I went out and fed and fed the normal that I would have 40 goats......they were still eating it all the next morning lol. It is amazing how just 10-15 goats reduces your feed sooooo much! It will help on money, help to keep my goats healthier, and healthier for my insanity lol. I just had too many and it was getting to the point were it is just no fun anymore, now it is getting fun again. I am literally watching my goats fatten up in front of my eyes and they just seem soooo happy! makes me want to cry with joy!! Then I got some bad news today.... I have been battleing kidney stones for 3 years now, started with two stones in each kidney, then I went to the hospital a couple of months ago and they said that each kidney was complelty filled with stones. So we have been doing test and everything and they think that I have a tumor on my thyroid gland. They said 85% of them are not cancerous and IF I do have one suergery should fix it if it hasent taken over the entire thyroid. That would explain why I can loose weight from my pregnancy and possibly why I cant get pregnant again. Everything is out of wack!! oh well we will see what happens, every one pray I dont have one please and if I do have one it is not cancer and that is can be safley removed!!

    Kidney stones (shudders at the thought of the pain)! Sorry you have to go through this and the tyroid problem. I'll pray for you :hug: dear. I have some experience, have a couple of friends had the same problem...both benign...fine once it's treated. You may have to take thyroid meds...but that's not a biggy. How are they going to fix the kidneys? That's what would worry me the most! :pray: :pray:

    I'm so glad you are successfully "rehoming" some goats! Congrats! Like you I have to be careful not to get too many. This is a lesson for me...thank you.

    Yes the feed bill change is a HUGE relief. I feel like caring for them all is so much easier. The hassle at feed time is over, the pushing and shoving is mostly gone. :p Its just better all around.

    We will be praying for you to have a quick and easy recovery especially if you do have to have surgery. Hopefully they can fix it and you'll have no more problems again. I don't want anymore children. I'm glad we can't anymore, but if you do and have trouble it can be so trying on you. Take care of yourself! :hug:

    my uncle has thyroid cancer and they say it is the "best kind of cancer" to get if you are going to get cancer.

    But lets hope it isnt cancer!!! :pray:



    I to love the new feed bill --- especially with no one milking and just raising the two kids (Gigi and Jitterbug). Once they are pregnant though I have to up the feed....bummers. LOL


    Feed went down in price though :leap: I was so excited.


    Speaking of things going down in price -- gas is $1.91 here :wahoo:

    Our gas here is 2.09 right now....hope it gets down to under $2. I went and had blood drawn and have to wait till december 12th to get back to the doctor to hear any results. I have to do a 24 hour urine collection..... oh fun! Now since I am completly in the dark, what do they do if you have a tumor?? It is surgery right? I dont mind taking the thyroid medicine at all because it will help me loose the weight that I have been struggling with. I have no clue what they are going to do about my stones, I think they hope that if it is my thyroid they can take care of that and prevent me from having anymore and I have to just take pain meds and flush out the ones I have, but if it is not my thyroid I have a severe issue and the doctor as she put it would be stumped. SOmething is out of wack and we dont know what it is, until we get the results and if that turns out negative....well then I dont know what we will do next. thank you all for your kind words!!
