Here's a picture of Willow, who became a Wilbur. But I'm thinking that Wilbur is preggers! Or she has a nice round tummy due to the fact that she is a piggy. It's kind of funny. When I had Colby, Harvey would keep her away from the food until he was done, Willow/Wilbur eats first now. Harvey has to take a back seat. Meg just finished half a bottle of milk so she's not hungry, just likes to suck on stuff. I have found that I need to have "barn" clothes now. It's amazing how dirty then can get. Also, goat milk stains your clothes. Not a stain, stain but like a grease or oil stain. Must be from the fat in the milk.
I wish that I had audio for this picture. Meg has some vocal cords on her! Makes me have a strong urge to feed her. I think that I have become her mom.
I have been asked if I have hobbled Maggie so that the baby can nurse. I have not and I'm not going to. The baby no longer even tries to nurse off her and it's really not a problem for me to bottle feed her. Maggie does not like getting on the stand, but once on she no longer fights to be milked. We are getting a rhythm going. I'm getting a little bit more milk out of her. Both Juju and Maggie are not eating their grain like the used to so that it not very tempting to Maggie.
Anybody know of a sure fire goat treat? Juju likes carrots but Maggie doesn't. They sometimes like green beans.
