Healthy treats.

Enid and Daphne await their daily treats.

All our animals get a foodie treat every day. In the pic they are getting apples which they love. In the Winter they get raw carrots which are great for getting rid of internal parasites. Daphne (the donkey) sometimes gets raw potatoes, the old people say that they are good for their kidneys. Goats won’t eat potatoes raw but love them cooked. In the Winter when we are out walking we collect ivy for the goats. This is very good for prevention of liver fluke. Garlic of course is very good for them if you can hide it in something else and fool them into consuming it. Not too unlike us really, food as medicine and all that. An apple a day keeps the doctor away!
