    I have a 2.5 month old kid that keeps getting alfalfa pellets in the sides of her mouth, I have pulled them out and got bit. Can she choke on them ? The pellets are softened when I pull them out but not all the way. She looks like a chipmunk. Thank you all.

So it was this or nothing. Dumped it all into the can and after chores noticed something is up and gave...

    Hey, all! Back in 2012 when we started, my mom and I both had ADGA memberships. Mine was a junior membership, and I could use her herd name and tattoo numbers. Now that I'm a regular member I've been told by ADGA that I can still use her herd name and tattoo numbers, which is awesome. But I...

    We give beet pulp to our horses and alfalfa pellets for our goatie girls. I've read that beet pulp is also beneficial for goats. Has anyone had experience with this? Since we already get it for the horses, I was thinking of adding it to their alfalfa. Thoughts, suggestions?
