Thingamajig: Diatomaceous Earth Shaker!
This was The S/O's brilliant idea! For $1.00 at Target in their bargain bin area, this martini shaker makes the best DE applicator to the goats I ever could have hoped for.
I place one cup of food grade DE in the shaker along with two drops of Tea Tree Oil, two Drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil, put cap it and shake like crazy to mix.
For Kids, I would use one drop each. For treating, rather then preventing lice/mites, I would use three drops each.
I do not have to wear protective gear or worry about it getting in the lungs of the goat as the holes are inside a protective rim that I put down against the goat's spine and dispense from head to tail.
