    fiasco farm's website has good info on how to test your goats poops for worms yourself. byo microscope. it's really very interesting.

    i'm looking online at microscopes at wmart right now to see if i could start now. lol. the things that will get me excited! lol

    or mabye someone will give me one for a late christmas epiphany hanukah present or early july fourth. oh, there is a muslim holiday coming up. hmm.......... would i be a believable convert?

    ps


    re fiasco farms. they are also one of the few places i can find that has really good honest info re reproduction of goats, their wants and needs. they don't shy away from the truth yet it can also be funny to read. odd to me how with all this info at our disposal on the internet, it is still VERY hard to find somewhere that will just say hey: your boy goat will pee on his face to attract the female goat to mate with him. it's a fact of life. or, when the female goat arches, there were fireworks.

    somehow when you are just trying to find out the specifics people get all grossed out. it seems to me that our trying to figure out ALL their needs is as important as just knowing about food and water. but then maybe i go too far by supplying mine with garter belts.
