We were so excited to get our new lamancha girls last Friday (we have 6 boer does and are on a waiting list for a buckling yet). But it's been nothing but a nightmare! The guy ran a herd of 95 mostly lamancha milkers which seemed to be some nice healthy looking does. We were able to pick our girls from a group of spring doelings of about 20. We've had nothing but sick goats since we got home! First we had shipping fever or pneumonia, what ever it was, as we had thick snot the next morning and still have a cough, but we didn't have a fever. Then they had goop coming out of their ears, which I've found out happens with lamanchas (????). So we cleaned the ears out as Fiasco Farms site recommended. NOW we've got pinkeye and cowpie poop, so seeing we dewormed them 2 days ago, we've gone to treating for cocci too. I'm so glad I've got these girls quarantined and hope we or the darn flies don't carry all this crap over to my boers. They still like to eat and we take them out for a walk every evening to browse as their pen has really nasty grass from our German Shepherds running in it all summer. So far these girls are walking pharmacy's! They've had 3 days Nuflor, 2 days Goat Serum, 3 days Probiotics, 2 days of oral B vitamins, Ivermectin, and now Terramycin eye stuff and Sulmet. We've never seen goats get this many problems like this. Ugh.
