Whinnie, the baby goat we are raising by hand, is making great progress. After 3 weeks of being unable to walk, he discovered his legs and has been making up for lost time. We are gradually introducing him to the herd but he still spend most of the day at our house, some of which is spent in the garden. We will soon however move him fully to the animal allotment. He will have his own shed at night and will continue to be bottle fed by us though we need to get him on to eating solids. I'm hoping that more time spent with the other goats on the allotment will encourage him to start eating leaves.
