Tidbits from the weekend
We found these jaw bones among others in the garden over the weekend. I'd say the larger may be a cow? The bottom one could be too but it is smaller and definitely shaped differently. I'd love to get a little history on this place, I have heard at one point it was a dairy farm and also heard sheep...I need to find out the scoop.
John took the kids fishing Friday night and we all went on Saturday morning. I didn't fish, just played with my camera and enjoyed the view.
This week we played veterinarian...something we like to do! We have been doing prior to raising farm animals. I never throw any people medications away because you never know when they'll come in handy! We gave the goats wormer and had their first shots.
CD&T guards against Tetanus & Enterotomema, aka as Overeating disease. I need to give another dose (2cc subcutaneous) in 3-4 weeks then annually.
The next thing I need to learn about is trimming their hooves, I plan to buy some good hoof trimmers this week. I watched a couple videos this week and I may ask my breeder if I can go out and observe her.
