The little girls had a visit to the vet this morning, and got their second CD and T shots, and a wellness check.
Their poop was deemed worm-free!
Dr. LaRosh and his assistent, Ryko... with Winnie.
Ryko is a man of few words with people, but we notice he exudes confidence and gentleness with the animals.
Both babies got a well-baby check, and a fecal float. Well.. one fecal float.
Winnie weighed 24.6 pounds, and Windy, 26.1 pounds.
Keith was able to take time out from his work day to help me, so it was easy to pop them in the carrier and take them the two miles to the clinic.
Goat friends, this concerns me. It appears to be bloody urine, on our patio.
Ick factor aside, bloody urine is NOT a good thing. Is it also an indicator of a goat in heat?
I'm thinking Delilah, from the copious amount.
I did mention it to Kori, Dr. LaRosh's nurse, and found out that Dr. LaRosh still does outcalls for farm animals, which I did not know. We are but two miles, and can schedule a call here if I get really concerned about Dee.
Ryko had to go in and out of the exam room several times (okay, someone pooped on the scale)... and you can see that the little girls were very interested in what was beyond the door!
As we were leaving a lady brought in one of the tiniest chihuahuas I have ever seen. The poor little dog had broken it's leg this morning, she thought, in play with another chihuahua. My heart went out to her... it was truly a teeny, tiny dog and I hope it is okay.
Here's our beautiful girl this morning... you can see the sun has come back, and the skies are blue again.
It was cold this morning, and is warming up to 60 today, for mild temps for a few days and then getting cold again next week.
And it's a comfort to see the henspa flock out enjoying themselves. (and cleaning up some of the sunflower seed!)
I wait every year to see this gorgeous tree at the foot of our hill, just beyond the Spehar's big ponds. Isn't it just beautiful? I fear we will have total leaf fall by this weekend,s o these scenes are soon to disappear for another year. How grand it is to be alive!
