After all the sickness

As I told you that all the bottle babies had been fighting some kind of sickness. I think we have it under control. After the vet had been here the 2nd time to treat Drizzle for bloat, I cleaned everything out and then sprayed them down with bleach. After they dried, I built new hay feeders and grain feeders and bedded them down.

I am hopeful that this is going to help take care of whatever it was. Everyone seems to be on the mend. I am slightly disappointed that they lost weight as we had weigh in for the fair last weekend. They are of course a little on the small side. I really hope they take off and do well.

The chickens got a clean floor as well. They didn’t seem to like the Clorox, but I don’t know where the sickness is coming from so they will have to deal with it.

In the meantime, my days have been filled with a familiar sight.

Bottles and more bottles. Since I am still home most days and can, we have been feeding three times a day.

Denton has been feeding Raider the Lamb most days. I usually feed Drizzle.

Landon takes care of Buster. They get pretty panicked and are out of control most feedings. Even though they are eating three full bottles three times a day, you would never know it by their behavior!

I did happen to be able to sneak up to the pen on evening after they had eaten and get a picture of them being calm. I don’t think that Lamb will ever know he isn’t a goat! They can be so sweet!
