News from my wee farm
I kept my daughter's four children the first week school was out. What happy kids they are and full of themselves too (if you know what I mean)! Nicole is holding Flop and Flip is trying to see who that is behind him. Yep, it is Joe alright! Sarah is next to Nicole - she is the youngest and YES she is in her nightgown. Caroline is trying to hold on to Flip who wants to play with Joe.
That was a happy week and everyone was healthy. Then this weekend Floppy got sick - the vet has been out three times and will come out again this afternoon. We think Flop will be okay now. She has had 3 doses of interstitial fluids - antibiotics - something for discomfort - charcoal - steroids and last but not least her pro-biotics for bloat. The vet also intubated her three times to expel gas and see if she had more to vomit. I really did not think she was going to make it. Goats go down very quickly. We don't know what her problem is other than she likes to eat. Flip would not leave her side. She is much, much better!!
That's it for today - thanks for joining me on my new adventure!!!
