Caution: This post is not for the faint of heart. In fact, it was all I could do to type it without sobbing. There's ugliness here....
Let me start by saying I WAS raised with a mama who instilled some type of fashion sense in me. At least she did her best... But while I was in Florida last month, my critter sitting DS#3 sent me the following text: "All good at home. By the way there's a green snake living under your front steps." Yep, all matter of fact I got that good news. So I'm not stepping foot outside my door without boots of some kind on my feet.
And I'm not the only girl on this place wearing something hideous. Oohhhh Noooo. Check out my sweet Ronnie.
We got the self sucking stopped but there are other udder problems going on.
So Ronnie is getting lots of massages and vitamin C. She hasn't been hand milked for a few weeks and her kid is just about weaned so she will be completely dry before long. After that, she probably won't be bred again-at least not for milking. She has a great temperament and will be an excellent companion goat for when we decide to get a real dairy goat, though! I can't put a price on the amount of knowledge I've gotten from her. Ugly or not, she's a keeper!
