Friday morning I went to work with Mom so that I could work on her dryer. She needed the vent cleaned out and I do it for her anytime she needs it. After that she took me to get a different wormer for the goats. I have to say that we have all the books about angora goats and we have like 7 different charts about how other farms handle worms in Angora Goats but the problem is that parasites change as much as an area changes. What works in Maine doesn't always work in California. And what works in Florida doesn't always work in Maine. With that in mind Mom says she is going to try a different approach to the worm issue. We are working on putting together a regiment for our goats from another breeder's regemint in the state. We are actually looking at using a different wormer and worming more often. We will be checking the goats and charting our worming issues once a month. We will trim hooves and clean the mens buttons as I call them. From that chart we will know how often to worm and if the new medication works we should be set as the herd grows. Mom and I also took time to sign up for a Free Webinar about feeding preganant sheep the right way. The Webinar is on the 28th and any one can take part so check it out by clicking Here. It is free so I thought It might offer some good information about our sheep and their nutrition.
After Mom got home from Fiber Circle her and I went to her new employee's house. They are a family of 2 girls and their parents and they are new to town. They moved here from Pennsylvania. Since they have nothing here but their clothes Mom and I took up some games for them to pass the time with. We also took up two pans and the fixing for 2 small dump cakes. The girls made the cakes and we brought one home and left one for them to share with Dad when he got home from work.
Then this morning I was off to work. This week's paycheck I bought a new bit that I am going to ride on Angel. I think I am going to use my really good bit for Ice. Anyway, after the sale barn Dad and I came home and roped. Then it is dinner and off to bed. One good side note ... We got some rain and by the Grace of God we will get some more.
