I typed out a reply then lost it ugggg..
I am not sure how long I am going to or can milk her.This is going to be my first time milking. I was thinking about the extra grain myself, before when I went out to look at her. I thought that dairy goats dry up at some point??? We are not going to be breeding her until Fall again, and that is a maybe..I guess I am just nervous because of the C-Section, even though the vet said to go ahead and she will be fine. Mike also found a guy who has some really good quality hay, and picking it up this afternoon as a matter of fact. We pretty much have run out, and the hay over at my inlaws seems like it is getting a little moldy so we did not dare take any chances.
She has no temp, and like I said she is walking around and doing normal things..doesn't seem sick at all..just sooo skinny..LOL..
As far as the calf goes, it is so easy to get attached to them especially when they are still on the bottle, but once they are weaned..the attachment (for me anyway) kind of wears off.They don't come up running to you and give you kisses and hugs like goats..they really have no personality. As a matter of fact, once ours were weaned they never came up to you..only ofcourse if you had a bucket of feed..then they came a runnin..
