We started Replamin Plus Gel the first weekend of May, and by the end of the month I noticed a change in coat health. Juniper had gotten much softer, fluffier and more evenly colored. I think she has a little ways to go, but she has definitely improved. Berta's coat was fairly coarse, and greasy, but turned a little softer and fluffy. I do believe both of them will be showing off perfect coats by the end of June (I hope)! Here are some before and after shots of Juniper...can you see the difference?
The last full week of May, the goats finally beat their nipples up enough they were unusable. As luck would have it for us, it happened at the same time we were starting to wean them. We noticed they were more interested in their grain than milk, so we just stopped their bottles cold turkey. They did great, and seemed completely un-phased by no longer getting their milk.
