My husband and I are "newbies" with goats and bought a herd a week ago. We have the buck and 5 wethers in a field by themselves with our 2 great pyreenes pups that are 5 and 6 months old. Yesterday we found one of the wethers dead. I am asking if anyone has any idea what could have happened?? They were wormed and vaccinated a week ago the first day on the farm. Thanks ahead for any comments!
I have been around goats for almost 8 years now, and I have learned a ton, and seen a lot. My goats are quite a mix of breeds, such as Saanan, Boer, Nubian, Alpine, and possibly others that I don’t know about. I love to hear about experiences people have had with goats, and I love learning even more things about them.
Hello Goathiker: since my last communication 22 days ago - Ellie's belly and udder have expanded as in the pictures I posted to the other post. We have been doing a lot of reading and really want to be prepared in the event she is going to kid. And either she is just getting really fat from too much food or she is preggo. Thoughts?
So the reason I join was I have a 8-9 month old Pygmy Female who is pregnant. We didn't know when we bout her we just though she was bloated. She is now bagged up and she is due any day now. Im 5'7 and shes stands half way to my knee. She is doing good not. But im worried about when she gives birth. The father could ether be a Pygmy or a Fanting. Any advice?
