This doesn't happen often, but Boz is our baby goat resident that came to us and can actually walk! Sadly his momma died while giving birth to him, therefore he did not receive the much needed colostrum to kick-start his immune system, nor did he have his navel dipped to prevent bacteria from entering through the navel. We're hopeful that we made it past any crucial "joint ill' that so easily can develop from bacteria entering the bloodstream through their navel. For these reasons he will always have a compromised immune system. We will forever have to keep a watchful eye on him, as he will be a candidate for many different diseases, that other goats with a healthier immune system can automatically fight off. Boz has the most affectionate personality.
