then, TennesseeSandy 
and I went to Newland, ate at Carolina BBQ, and attended the
Livestock Integrated Parasite Management Workshop

Outside, we checked eyelids for anemia.

Dr. Niki Whitley, Animal Science Specialist
NC A&T State University Cooperative Extension Program

taught the class 

Inside, we had instruction and checked fecals under a microscope. I am pleased to report that SweetPea is as clean as a whistle, other folks got poor parasite reports.

check out my certificate! SweetPea will be impressed.

Still learning from you, and I appreciate it so much! Thanks for more good info! The little bucklings are dolls, too.

I really like using the famacha method on my farm too! Glad to hear you had a good report on Sweet Pea!

Very cool! Would love to take a class like that. I'm going to check with the GA extension service. Did you get your microscope?
