Quite a bit of snow is expected tomorrow, but the goats say that spring is on its way. The wooly bear goat boys are shedding. It seems to me that goats have several types of hair – short, fine and dense; short and coarse; and long and fine. Give a goat a scratch and you’ll have all three on your clothes. I’ve pulled my horse curry comb and brush out of storage.
Meanwhile, I noticed that Caper had a slight limp. I think that he bruised a hoof. Possibly a pebble got stuck between his toes. In any event, it was time to clip his hooves. I have a pair of shears especially designed for this job. They work great for trimming the overgrown nails. Too bad my back is not made for the job. While Steve acted as a human stanchion and fed sweet feed, I bent over and clipped. I think we need to build a stand. For now, I’m going to take a couple of ibuprofen.
