It was born premature today to a first time mother and couldn't stand. My wife gets to be mommy.

It is up and walking now and has drank half it's weight in milk. It is a third the size it should be. We'll bottle feed it through weening.

That's for lambs. I think BBQ sauce is for goats (not the flying goats, obviously).

That's a goat? It's so small I thought it was a cat. My mistake.

You can tell it isn't a cat because it wasn't being held under running water for three days. :p

We just had two more born this afternoon also to a new momma. She dried them both of and fed them, I think they will be fine but I'll check on them every two hours all night.

I raised goats at one time. I still remember having my arm elbow deep up the backside of a dam turning a breached kid at 3:00 am in the morning. Goats are cool, but I don't miss raising them.

I started my flock four years ago and this will be the first year i have wethers to butcher. I have three that I've been finishing on corn that will go to the butcher shop next month. I hope they are as tasty as lamb.

Do you castrate them yourself? I did. That is a study in empathy.

I've cut hundreds of critters but I've gone soft in my old age, I band them now.

I hear ya. I never used banding because I didn't know which was worse. But the cut and draw was bad enough.

The hardest was always calves, castrate a couple dozen calves at a time and your shot, but you have a good meal when your done!
