|Buckling, Sanuba and Emily|
I'm milking Snub (Sanuba) three times a day, not because she has such a huge quantity of milk, but because we're still battling congested udder. I've been working with Glen Dupree, a homeopathic vet in Louisiana, to resolve this, and we're definitely making progress. From one teaspoon of milk, painfully (for me) extracted, she has increased steadily to a little more than a quart today. Her buckling is getting all he wants, as well, and I'm sure he's consuming at least a quart or more a day. This has been a long road for both of us. I've been massaging her udder at every milking, applying hot and cold packs twice a day, giving her herbs, Ester C, and homeopathic remedies as directed, and though she's much softer and more pliable than before, we still have a way to go.
Today I got some udder salve and herbs from Fir Meadow to add to the protocol. I like Kat Drohval's products, and my goats eat them readily. Her BWW Wormer is great. In combination with GISoother, it's kept my goats from being plagued by parasites. The GI Soother targets Haemonchus contortus, a particularly nasty worm that Beatrice contracted from the sheep that was here when she got here.
