Two years ago I was in the same situation, but the filly was only at three weeks and wouldn't take to the bottle, Igloo Mama, etc. Working with our local veterinary hospital we leased a nurse goat. And she was fabulous. The filly finally took to the bottle, but having mama goat around was a real god-send. I also ended up purchasing another orphaned filly to buddy with Phoebe. Mama goat raised both girls until "weaning", and then went on to her next orphans. I can't say enough great things about my experience with the mama goat lease.
PS - I know, technically, she was a nanny goat, but the vets always called her "mama goat"
