Killarney is such a gentle soul. He is so friendly and caring that I have to remind myself that as a ram he can be dangerous. When I bring the boys out food or grain he runs right up to the gate and waits for me, he even nuzzles up against Sara.
Ironwood is doing much better since I started treating him. I want to thank everyone who commented with suggestions and well wishes. I am still very new at this goat/sheep thing so I very much appreciate any advice that helps me keep them alive and happy.
For the two days that Ironwood was very sick Killarney stuck right by his side, inside the shelter, spending most of his time providing comfort and support. This couldn't have been easy as he has been "noticing" that one of the girls is in heat and has been curling up his lips!
That is friendship for you, he is my Gentle Giant.
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
