Goats and ITP Update

Took Terran in for a blood test on Monday and his count was 773,000! He's weaningoff the prednisone this week and is done going to the hospital. We can declare victory against ITP!

The doctor said don't bother bringing him in any more, just watch for nosebleeds and easy brusing and other signs of low platelet count.

In other news, we now have 3 female goats:

We will raise them up and then breed them and use them for milk purposes. Perhaps we'll even make some goat cheese. The extra milk will go to the pigs we plan on raising.

See some great goat photos here on Flickr.
