Bent hocks




Bent hocks

Sometimes a kid is born with bent hocks. If they are splinted for a few days, the problem clears up.

    Selenium deficiency is what causes the bend in the legs. Bo-Se is the solution. Were you expecting December babies?

      I splinted the legs and they are fine now. I need some Bo-Se but you need a vet prescription to get it. I am working on that. Any suggestions? I was expecting December babies although I have done a better job this year of spreading the kidding now through to April. My Boer buck breeds year round. My goal is to have a constant supply of milk.
