Sometimes a nanny goat’s milkbag will become swollen if she has a blockage in a teat. Cherie discovered that had happened with our goat Kelly.
After the teat became blocked, her kids only nursed on one side, and the blocked side became dangerously swollen. So while I held Kelly by the horns, Cherie stripped some milk and cleared the block. Sometimes while you’re doing something like that, the baby goats will jump up on your back.
And sometimes a tree falls down over a fence.
So sometimes we get an unanticipated source of firewood.
