ok..... only got one answer when I added more questions to the other post. So thought I'd try again in a new post. Here's what I wrote: *Erased a few questions that got covered, and added a few new ones I thought of.* Hadn't gotten an opionion as to whether or not the 10x6 inside pen with 10x16 outside yard would be ok (for a month or so) for this little buck and one adult doe. Other questions I'm developing too...... He was wormed a couple weeks ago. I think he still sorta looks like he might have worms. (I say that like I'm some expert....right? ) His stools are perfect pebbly round - not to dry or wet. But he looks just a touch hunched, and holds his tail straight up rather than curled to the back. But he's not holding his tail straight out or down... so that's good. And he's not REALLY hunched, just maybe a little. Deworm now? Wait a few weeks? Stay on a "3 month" schedule? Bite the bullet and have a vet check his stool for any worms, what worms, and have the vet make the decision? I have the C & D - T vaccine....... the bottle gives a dosage rate of 2 ml. Is that right for any age or size goat? Or does he need less? I must say, I'm terrified of this part. It's not the needle.... I used to vaccinate dogs and cats all day long at an animal shelter I worked at. What I'm afraid of is killing the little guy with giving too much or him having an allergic reaction and going into shock. Big stuff. I would be SOOO devistated if I killed him. Also, about vaccinating..... the bottle says it's good for 10 doses, and I know he'll need a second dose a month after the first. BUT, the bottle says use it all up after opening. SOO.... can I vaccinate now, and still use the same bottle in a month before it goes bad? We also plan to get a doe ASAP, and if I can hold it in the frige for 4-6 weeks, that way I'd get atleast 4 of the 10 doses available ..... 2 for the little guy, and 2 for the doe. Can I do that? I have 3 books... The New Goat Handbook, Storey's Guide to Raising Dairy Goats, & Raising Meat Goats For Profit...... but they don't cover every little bit. And then the books themselves add more questions. Such as, one book says that "in young kids, in which the ruman is not yet working, adding B vitamins directly to the diet in the form of yeast is recommended". Anyone do this? This poor little goat won't have any room for himself in his pen if I keep adding all that's suggested by the books. :stars: He's got a sleeping shelf, his water bucket that can't be overturned or peed/pooped in, milk crate attached to the wall with his feeding dish (so it can't be stepped in or turned over), milk crate attached to the wall with hay...... and then it's suggested I get him a mineral lick or loose minerals, baking soda, and now yeast too? - so that'll take some more feeders on the wall. LOL He has a 6x10 inside space, and I'm running out of room! :help: I've taken him for walks in to the edge of the woods where the wild black berries and other weeds/bushes grow. He LOVES that stuff. He'll eat anything... leaves (fresh or dry), grass, weeds, pine needles..... he just walks along nibbling a bit of all of it. The pine needles seem to be his favorite. I know this is a long post..... but just want to get it all covered.
