Well.....people get on here and get depressed by all the sad stories and problems they read about.....its not actually that goats have so many problems, its just that we don't go around writing threads about our healthy, happy goats as much as we do our problems when we need help. How about a success story now?? This is Ozark Jewels LB Winterberry. When she was a month old, she was having fun jumping around and caught her leg in a tree about 2' off the ground. No one was around and the poor girl hung in the tree with just two feet on the ground for several hours before I found her at feeding time. By then her right leg was completely broken in two directly below her shoulderblade. We gently removed her leg from the tree where it was stuck, splinted her leg and gave her comfrey and extra calcium for the next two months. She managed to free her leg from the splint after two weeks but continued to heal well. Also left her on milk for five months to speed healing. She is completely healed now and has an only barely perceptable limp when she walks. She is due to be bred this month. Here she is yesterday afternoon. She just feels SOOOO GOOD!! Winterberry is the black doeling with the wide white belt.
