Yikes, hope you get warmer weather soon. They're predicting a cool spring for PNW. Also hope that broken eye socket has healed well, and some better luck is moving your way!

Quite the story! Hope the leg is OK. Pretty low key here - took the goats for a hike instead of shopping on Black Friday.

Just wanted to complete this story with an old photo of the foot at 2 years old - nice and tight, no splayed/pigeon toes. So, developed over time.

Yikes, now I'm a bit scared about the alfalfa thing. My lead goat was 2 yrs old when I got him, and his breeder feeds a lot of Chaffhaye which is all alfalfa.  I do too, probably close to 2/3 of th...

Sounds like you are as careful as I am! My nemesis is the Salmon la Sac road over in E Wa. 12 miles of often nasty washboard, potholes, only a few good sections. For some insane reason I have taken t...

Looking for advice, comments.... My lead goat turned 5 this year, and as he has aged he has developed what I see as a splayed toe/weak pastern issue in his right foot.  That foot also seems to have ...
