for a Quick Brush up on kidding, Please visit our sister site – Goat-Link.com and read our kidding page  

Kidding  Supplies:
Minimal supplies you will need.

  1. Clean towels for clearing baby’s nose and drying off baby -(hand towels gotten at the thrift shop are great).
  2. Lubricant for assisting delivery- (Vaseline or KY Jelly will do but there are inexpensive non-greasy lubricants just for lamb and goat obstetrics- my favorite is ‘Superlube’ because it is antiseptic as well).
  3. 7% iodine for navel cord dipping-( a film container works great for dipping navels) So you do not contaminate the whole bottle. You just put iodine in the film container dip navel in iodine and tip bottle and kid to make sure that the navel gets completely covered.
  4. Dental floss or a navel clamp for tying off possible ruptured navels- (this does not happen often, but when it does you’ll need this).
  5. Surgical gloves for keeping hands from transferring germs into mom should you need to assist-(These can be found at Walmart or any of the livestock supply house).
  6. Scissors that have been sterilized, preferably surgical scissors but any will do for cutting navel cords shorter if they break long, you’ll want them about 1 ½ inches long-(kept in a plastic bag to keep them clean).
  7. Alcohol for sterilizing scissors (30 minutes submerged in alcohol will sterilize) and cleaning hands before delivery.
  8. Paper towels for general clean up.
  9. Sterile syringes and needles- I use syringes for everything from injections to administering oral meds- 3 cc and 6 cc are great. (diabetic syringes measured in tenths are great for babies, you may have to change needles.. I have experienced the needles supplied are not strong enough, even for baby) I use short needles ½ inch and 3/4 inch 20 gauge.
  10. BO-SE (selenium /vit E combination to combat white muscle disease) obtained from your vet before the big day for selenium injection for baby- in selenium deficient areas- check with your vet on dosage. ( I use 1/10 cc for pygmy babies)
  11. Penicillin Procaine G in case you have to go inside the doe to assist the delivery, you will want to put her on antibiotics for 5 days afterwards-to be safe.
  12. Nasal spray or hemorrhoid medicine reduce swelling of vulva area in hard deliveries. (Both work great)
  13. Probiotic paste or yogurt to replace the rumen flora after administering any antibiotics. Antibiotics kill good bacteria that keeps the rumen working as well as what bacteria you are combating in the body.
  14. Disposable plain vinegar douche for cleaning out mom after a hard delivery or one with a dead fetus.
  15. Molasses and/or Goat Nutri-Drench for replacing mom with vital minerals and vitamins after kidding, also for quick energy that was depleted during delivery. A bucket or bowl that holds at least a gallon for the warm water you will mix the molasses into. (I use about 1/3 cup to a gallon of water).
  16. Propylene Glycol in case of ketosis-gotten at the vets or livestock supply.
  17. Rectal thermometer for taking baby’s temp or mom’s.
  18. Scale to weigh baby.
  19. Camera and assistant-for recording that wonderful event-I use a video camera so if there are problems later I can look back to see if something went wrong during delivery and I have forgotten-Plus it makes great brag material!
  20. Time to make sure your finger nails are shorter than short and remove any rings or bracelets before delivering kids- you don’t want anything that could tear her uterus should you have to go in to help.

 

Just a Goat

Just a Goat!

There is NO Such thing as "Just a Goat"

There is NO Such thing as “Just a Goat”

From time to time friends and family tell me to lighten up, it’s “just a goat” or, that’s a lot of time and money you spend on “just a goat” but they really just don’t understand.While the following aren’t our words – they do reflect our sentiments.

Many hours have passed and my only company was “just a goat”. Some of my proudest moments have come about through “just a goat” and some my saddest moments have been brought about by “just a goat”. But in those times of darkness the gentle touch of “just a goat” gave me comfort and reason to overcome the moment.

“Just a goat” brings into my life friendship, trust and just a lot of joy. “Just a goat” brings out compassion and patience that make me a better person. Because of “just a goat” I rise early every morning rain, hail or shine, take lots of exercise and look longingly into the future. So, for me and other people with goats, it’s not “just a goat”, but all the hope and dreams, many fond memories and the pure joy of the moment.

There is NO Such thing as “Just a Goat”

“Just a goat” brings out what’s good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day. If you too think it’s “just a goat”, I hope that someday you can understand that it is the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being “just a person”. If you understand that it is not “just a goat’, next time your hear that phrase, just smile because they really just don’t understand.
