azalea update

Friday morning update: 


Azalea ate an entire carrot's-worth of carrot pennies this morning, and after I had returned to the house, she ventured out of the barn - with her mama Lily of the Valley by her side and her son Mallow trotting along behind - and into the roundtop to the self-serve hay dispenser. I still don't know what caused her to become ill, and I'll continue to watch her closely to be sure she is eating well and is fully recovered. But for the moment, I'm feeling much relieved!

Thank you very much for your concern and kind words - it meant a lot to me when I was sitting out in the barn for most of yesterday, trying to watch Azalea without making her feel that she was being watched :)

  2. Good news! I guess even goats have an off day now and then.

    1. Getting up on the wrong side of the bed is okay, but not eating, regardless of the original reason, is very serious - like rapid downhill slide into fatal - for a goat.
