We've been dealing with goat health issues recently. Buddy the goat hurt his back, and got stuck in a dry creek bed with very steep sides. Thank goodness for our friendly neighborhood scrap yard owner and his strong employees who came out to help us lift Buddy out.
Buddy had to spend two days at the vet's. At first, we we worried that he might have broken his back but it turned out to just be a very bad strain, or perhaps a pinched nerve. He's now on light duty - no climbing on the steep parts of our land or knocking heads with his goat pals.
We combined convalescent care with garden clean up. In this video, Buddy and his herd mate Cocoa get some gentle exercise and prune my perennials.
