Hens and chicks and baby goats

I got these hens and chicks a few years ago. And I found the hen planter to put them in at a little nursery in Tn. I didn't know if these were going to make it. Then they started to get green. Then I noticed these really pretty flowers. I love them.

I don't know if you can see it, but there is a volunteer tomato plant growing in this planter in my front window. It has flowers on it.

And this is Mariah's jaw. For those with goats, does this look like bottle jaw to you? I think it is. I have given  her Cydectin the first day, then Ivermectin, then Dectomax. And it's still there, just like this. So maybe she just has a double chin? She's half Nubian and half Boer. The other 2 don't have this.

The 3 girls together.They are so sweet. But very wild. Sandy's kids always are. Until they get older. I will probably keep these girls.

And I had a call this morning from a newspaper reporter. She wants to come out Thursday to do a little story on my farm. My friend up the road gave her my #. So she will come and do a story about the animals and soap and other things.

Also put an ad on CL for the LaMancha goats and had a call on them. She's going to come this evening to look at them.

I love the planter for the hen and chicks. I have them but have never had them bloom.

I had no idea they bloomed. But these do and I love them.

It looks like Mariah has milk neck. Here is a link with pics
http://fiascofarm.com/goats/milk_neck.htm I noticed that our Boar LaMancha cross kids had a lot of fat in that spot on their neck. Not as much as your goat, but it just seems to be a place they collect fat.*shrug*
Here is a link that Granny Miller did on bottle neck recently with pics. http://www.granny-miller.com/bottle-jaw-the-4-steps-to-worming-sheep-cattle-goats/

I meant to say Granny Miller did on Bottle Jaw.

Thank you, Kimberly. I'll check out that link. Mariah's neck seems to be a bit smaller today.
