Terrible time for Pinkie



Goats May 15 27

Pinkie's pregnancy has ended badly. On Wednesday evening, after 11 hours in Labour, the vet was called to carry out an emergency caesarean. The two kids died after only a couple of minutes. Yesterday, we moved Pinkie on a makeshift stretcher, to her goat house. Afterwards we nearly lost her. She went into a state of shock. Another visit from the vet and she was put on a drip and given various injections. After that she showed some signs of recovery. She started eating fresh grass. This morning she ate some more fresh leaves though she is less interested in prepared food. We still have a long way to go if she is to recover and that recovery is not yet guaranteed. She has not stood since Monday and getting her on her feet is going to be the next big challenge.
