Did I or didn't i...say anything about how last ?Friday, when the computer came, the new Vet from Magdalena also came? I don't remember and well...will just go from here. SHE came. New Vet. A Woman. She came to take blood from Sonny Ray and do a TB test on him. These things for Jan the Dog Trainer who will "use" Sonny Ray to breed her Nigerian/Saneen doe Nughat. Once Sunny's tests come back good, we will load him up and he will stay there till spring. This will give Gideon, his OLD father and yard mate a good break. I will bring back Flash, Jan's young wether from the Tenzen breeding, to keep company with the old Gideon through the winter.
Moving buck goats around.
It is no easy task, drawing blood from Goats. Goats, even Snowbunny, don't like being restrained. This new Vet, the Woman, had Ways....
when we were taking blood from the neck, one held the head, the second knee'd the Goat into the solid structure while gripping the flesh at the top of the hind leg tight. For the TB test that happens under the tail, in the soft flesh there, head held the same. Knee'd into the solid structure the same and tail held, arched over the back, firm.
She knows these things. but
she is fast and uh, well, in a hurry. For Snowbunny, she commented several times how she carries her tail down .....but maybe this was because she had just stuck her finger in her butt??????????????? She is not much on herbal remedies....gave me something to use two times a day. Ok...for Snowbunny, but, we'll see. And said it might be some kind of cancer. OK. that too.
After she left there was comotion out there. I'd put on a new collar for Snowbunny and everyone was noticing that in the first place and then when 2 other people showed up, one sticking their finger into Snowbunny and making her bleat, well....Everyone had thoughts they didn't understand so there was a lot of head butting
the Vet visit itself caused comotion. Mostly between Snowbunny and Ginger, but Ona came into the fray on behalf of her mother.
This is what i WISH Vets would be willing to know. But they aren't. Women or Men. They don't care.
another pouch, or pocket, whatever, but i want to make it, Lizard and Moon, for whatever
