A few weeks ago I posted about using
Ammonia Chloride for the boy goats.
Since this could be a common problem with goat owners,
I thought I would post a little more about it.
You can order this through Hoegger Supply.
Only $1.95 plus shipping per 8 oz bag.
We mixed it with a little orange juice and water
and then offered it to the boys while we had them
in the stand for hoof trimming.
Ringo is such a big teddy bear.
There is nothing he will not do complacently.
This stuff tastes like pure salt
but he is of the mind that if we are hand feeding it to him
it must be good. He generously agrees to partake
even though we know he doesn't really like it.
He is the same way with the hoof trimming.
Rodeo on the other hand
had a more honest reaction.
He came around though.
Rylee kept offering, while I worked on his hooves,
and he eventually humored us.
Cocoa got her pedicure also.
Poor thing is already getting so big and round
and she still has months to go.
And of course Sage had her turn.
Out of all the goats she is the orneriest,
but still not a problem.
It never fails that when we trim hooves
we really feel like we got something done that day.
I read somewhere that I am supposed to trim Wilson's hooves too.
Now that really will be an accomplishment won't it?
