Monday was a day mixed with dissapointments and praises. We Loona came down with gangrene mastitis so she will never be milked again. We were all so disappointed. We weren't even sure that we were going to be able to save her, but we got a call from the vet yesterday morning(she was at the vet)saying that is going to pull through! What is even better, one side of her udder may still be usable though we will only use it to get colostrum out of. Praise the Lord! We also had some of our best babies born in the wee hours of the morning. A doe and a buck from our Lamancha(Mandie) was exactly what we needed to keep our spirits up! God never gives us more than we can bear right? She is at home now and hopefully is on the mend. We now need to disinfect our whole barn or we could have a mastitis epidemic! So....I guess we know what we will being doing today!
Edited to say that sadly Loona died on 3-19-08. She will be sadly missed by our whole family.
