Our buck pen was pretty quiet for a couple of days. All of them, Bagheera, Kingsley, and Rafiki went under anesthesia and made it out alive.
It was castration day for Kingsley and Rafiki and they finally lost their family jewels. Rafiki recovered quickly as if nothing was missing, Kingsley had us worried. He wouldn't eat for over 24 hours, and it took a while to get his pain under control. Poor guy, really took it hard but has perked up since then and become extra friendly. We are really excited to see what kind of change comes with Kingsley's surgery since he was all about the ladies and getting a little too edgy with us humans. We also hope he has less desire to pee on his face but the vet said that could take a long time.
Bagheera was scheduled for the same day to remove a large scur he formed but he ended up breaking it a few days prior and was bleeding everywhere. I don't have a disbudding iron and he was really painful so I called a vet out. It was a quick procedure and he was much happier after we got it taken care of.
We are getting so excited about baby goats next year, we can't wait. Goat life is always an adventure!
