Goat hoof trimming

Today was goat hoof trimming day.  I trim their hooves every 6 weeks.  I alternate wormers every 6 weeks between ivermectin and albendazole (except I do not use albendazole on the pregnant goats).  I also give Multi-Min every 12 weeks.  The photo demonstrates using a human stanchion.  I do this when it’s too much of a hassle to use the milking stand.  If you face forward you can administer oral medications and if you face backwards you can bend over and trim hooves and give subcutaneous injections.  Today Tom helped me with the hooves- usually I do it on my own.  It certainly is nice to have help!
