I bought one of these today to use planting my corn, sunflowers, beets, and possibly a few other things. It is an Earthway 1001-B Precision Garden Seeder and I hope it works out good for us. Josh and I put it together, but due to the rain I haven't had the chance to try it out yet... The rain also washed away a few tomato plants I stuck in Lindsay's garden.
We're still treating Jewel's pinkeye, and it hasn't been as severe as Scraggles as of yet. I don't think it will be (knock on wood) so maybe it will get better soon. You can tell she doesn't feel good though, she hasn't been browsing with the rest of the goats. It could be the rain though. It seems that the only two goats to be affected by the pinkeye so far are the fawn colored Lamanchas which I find strange.
I am debating whether or not to put Guthrie the baby goat with the rest of the herd, and possibly dose him with some antibiotics preventatively. He is still being bottle fed but is miserable in his cage and lonely. The books I have say to keep them away from the rest of the goats til they get bigger because they don't have the immunity from the mother's milk. I just wonder which is worse for him the stress and loneliness or the chance that he might catch ill. If you have any suggestions I'd be appreciative since this is our first "bottle baby" and all I know is what I read in the books.
