    Dog Help ASAP!!! Update:

    You had a hard decision to make, but I think you did the right thing. Some animals just aren't a match for some situations...it's not a good mix for the family or the animal. Good luck on finding something that 'fits' and completes your family a little better.

    Cake decorating. Need an idea.

    Do a burger! White cake top and bottom, don't cut the 'crown' off - use it for the top bun. Color accordingly. Use sprinkles/jimmies for the seeds on top of the bun. Chocolate cake with chocolate icing for the burger. Use icing with the 103/104 tip for the lettuce/tomato. You could also...

    Help on newborn Nigerian Dwarf goat-- Emergency!

    I'd go with a dose of BoSe, and try to encourage her to nurse from mama. I had a ND that was born (trips) and seemed to walk on the top of her toes (feet bent behind). She straightened out after a few days. Remember that they are in tight quarters for a while...it takes a little while to...

    Fainting goat had a baby............. help !

    Congrats on the new baby! If she just had a single - encourage the baby to nurse from both sides of mama's udder. It's not unusual for the baby to have a preferred side and then her udder will become lopsided (and engorged, and uncomfortable). Just take baby off the preferred side and offer...

    So we're back to considering goats... Nigerians or Kinders?

    Hmmmm, what if I had Nigerians for milk and bred them to a Nubian? Would that give me better meat animals in the offspring? There's a mini farm near me that offers Nubian buck stud services and since I'm not planning to have my own buck this might be a good option. Don't go that route! A...

    Does my dog have ear mites? How do I treat it?

    Ear mites are unusual in dogs, unless you have lots of cats around (or at least they are here in WV). Clean out the ears with hydrogen peroxide or listerine. Get as much gunk out as you can. Many dogs get ear infections - yeast and bacterial - and you may need to pick up a tube of medicine...

    Anyone in WV???

    Funny that you say that...my son and a friend were out playing and they had chickens on their shoulders...they said that the birds weren't chickens - they were 'red-neck pirate parrots' ! I had to laugh! On another note...this heat sucks. 100+ today...NOT liking it. Remember the snow in...

    Anyone in WV???

    Welcome Neighbor! I'm right next door in Buckhannon.... We use a heat lamp in the coldest part of the winter. We have it on a timer to come on in the early morning and stay on for several hours. We use about 5" of shavings on the floor and keep the window shut. We let our birds free range -...
