Snowbell is the mother and Carmel is the baby. They are both sable Saanens - according to Eileen Lamm, one of Shawano County's 4-H goat superintendents. She was so great. I emailed the extension to find someone to help trim Snowbell's hooves and disbud Carmel. The 4-H agent sent back a couple of names and I lucked out when I called her and she told me that she could come over. So, Snowbell's hooves are now much better - and I learned how to trim them, so I can keep working on them. Carmel's horns are gone and her scabs will be gone in a couple of weeks. Plus, she brought along the CDT (tetanus) vaccine and gave both of them shots and left the bottle with us, so I can give them their boosters in a couple of weeks.
