Little Gloria has taken to the bottle like a champ, and now comes running at feeding time. When the weather is half way decent I turn Gloria and her brothers out to trail about the pasture with the rest of the herd. Gloria still tries to nurse and as a result the about the only time Mame' lets the boys nurse is if Gloria is separated and getting her bottle. Fortunately, Mame' doesn't seem to mind too much when Gloria tags along in the pasture.
Mo is much improved these days and I am scheduled to take a fecal sample in next Tuesday for another check. Hopefully he will be all cleared up and we will get approval to let him back out in the general population again. I was going to move him, Rita and Gloria to the old kidding pen. But I think I am going to leave Gloria with her brothers and move Ramie and Rita along with Mo. They are both due to be bred the next time they come into heat, so having them close to the buck pen will make it easier for me to recognize when that happens.
Only 11 days to Liberty's due date and Bekah's sixth birthday. We are all hoping that Liberty will kid on that day and have at least one doe kid so Bekah will have a second goat for "her herd". (I've already promised her Tsunami since they are such pals.)
