OH MY GOSH!!!! Look at Otis!

 

This is what he is SUPPOSED to look like. Here is his brother, Amos.

                                                              

I walked out this afternoon to get eggs and found poor Otis looking like The Elephant Man. 

I mean LOOK AT THIS:

Poor Otis! I couldn't immediately get in touch with my vet, so (God bless the internet!) I got on the GoatandSheepRancher yahoo list and the Dairy Goat yahoo list for advice. God bless these people. Within an hour the advice was rolling in.

I was able to reach my vet who, after hours, (Bless him too!) gave me three shots for Otis--banamine, dexamethasone, and nuflor. Other Half wasn't at home, so Border Collie and I were left on our own to separate Otis from the other goats and poke him three times. (Otis was NOT amused.)

Keep little Otis in your prayers. Hopefully we'll figure out what's causing this before it's too late. 

(I swooney! Ain't that just life on a farm? If it ain't one thing, it's something else!)
