I won’t blame the mini goats this time 😉
Bottle feeding has finished – hallelujah – a fantastic experience but not one I want to do again in a hurry.
The best thing about bottle feeding is that the bubba goats get very attached to their ‘mummy’ and bowl you over everytime they see you.
No, this time I’m blaming asthma.
Isn’t oxygen just the best thing in all the world 🙂 breathe it in my friends.
If you say no, than you most probably have never suffered from asthma.
This week the children and I have all had asthma to varying degrees with the boy suffering the most and almost going to hospital with an asthma attack on Saturday. Very scary stuff.
He’s finally got some medication (on top of his preventer and puffer) that is working really well and the coughing/wheezing has almost stopped.
One day we might even get them back to school.
We’re about to do a rain dance so that the local allergens get washed away to the back of Bourke and we can breathe freely again.
wheezy and co.

Sorry about the asthma. What a pity; I love goats! My favourite all-time animal.
thanks giorgethomas 🙂 goats are fabulous – I had no idea how fabulous until recently having my own as pets
I know how you feel, I hope you all get over it soon
you too! oh no – probably the same triggers – burnoffs, pollen, dust, dry weather
Since I have had and have to guard against asthma attacks…I can readily accept this as a reason for not posting…blessed is my inhaler for it protects me and is always with me…okay so that may be ‘a little over the top’ as they say…but you know what I mean.
you understand then Charles – inhalers are a wondrous thing indeed 😉
You are quite a girl shuffling all that hay and feedings the animals anyway…
here too allergy, august is bad ;(
The hay and chaff is not too bad for me – they only get a small amount every day, as they mainly eat the grass in the fields – it’s mainly pollen that I have a reaction too. My animals are my antidote for the bad things – they make me very happy 🙂
The changing seasons are a b$&@#% – asthma, hayfever, etc. Hope you have all recovered. Apparently rye grass is one of the very worst triggers, so if you have any, get the goats to eat it 🙂
I’ll get the goats onto it bb 🙂 We are getting better – the boys new medication worked a treat
Hope you are all breathing deeply & the wheezing & puffing behind you. Asthma & respiratory probs have been rampant in Brisbane the last week. Nothing better than a lungful of air without the irritating spasm. Take care.x
August is a bad time in Queensland – the wind is the final straw on the camels back (blowing all those allergens around) 🙂 thanks Jane
