Two down

Well, two of our baby goats died last night. We think it was white muscle disease, from Gretta having toxemia or ketosis. The prognosis was pretty grim, but we hoped they would make it, but they didn't. The two that died were Edie, one of the blonds, and Mike, the little red billy goat. I guess the good news is the two that are surviving are doing really good, so I guess that's the best we can hope for now, is that they keep doing good, and at least we'll have 2 goats out of the four (5 if you count Gretta).
