  1. Goat Management
    I have 4 goats, a wether, a buck, a doe and a doeling. The wether and doeling (brother and sister), they were sold together and very attached! They freak out when they're not together. The wether Resin even mounts his sister Rosie all the time. I didn't think my buck would do it since he never...

    Hello all! I just picked up my second goat on Saturday, and I worry that I may have chosen the wrong breeder. Betty (the doeling) is not only very skittish, but seems to have a twitch. Every now and then she’ll stomp her left leg, and there’s no real reason to it. She had been lying down and...

  5. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hello! I am going to be a new goat mom this spring, and would love some tips on how to raise the kids. I'll be getting a little wether and doeling, both are pygmy fainting crosses. I know they have to eat separate feed from my research so far, but I'm finding it difficult to find information on...

    I'm new to ND goats and inherited 2 quite by accident. They're adorable and about 12 weeks old. They were very skinny when we got them about 2 weeks ago. We took them to the vet who just gave them a quick look over and suggested we come back since they were terrified of even us. They clearly had...

    Hi, I’m new here and have a huge problem. So my 1.5 Month old baby goat is doing terribly, she didn’t receive any colostrum from when she was born because she was a bit premature and her mother barely had any milk. I’ve been bottle feeding her ever since. At first she was fine then she got a...

    This morning I found one of my doelings dead. Her eyelids, super pale, no color, whatsoever. I dewormed my herd because they all seemed to have slightly low FAMANCHA score. I dewormed with cydectin, safeguard, and I did a 5 day Corid treatment. They all seem to be doing well, but I still...

    So last night I heard one of my pygmy goats crying like she was in pain. I run outside to check on her, and she is just standing there crying. She is very small so I sat her on my lap. She jumped off my lap, walked a few step, stumbled, fell over, and that was it. She was gone. It all took less...

    So here is my dilemma: My friend has this incredibly sweet Boer doeling which will be eight weeks old on the 20th. My friend tried to disbud this kid with acid (which didn't work) and so now this goat has little horns poking through. I plan to bring this goat to my place in a week or two, but...

    I have a 3 week old doeling who doesn’t have as much hair on her face as her sister and her face is white. Even though there is plenty of shade for them, the uv index here is really high and her face got sunburnt. Is there a sunscreen I can use on goats? Maybe one that is made for horses? I...

    Ruby is a beautiful, classically white-eared Nubian from strong milking lines. Since September, she's been fed a serving of grain mix daily on the milk stand, where she's handled, tamed for milking, and her hooves are trimmed. Our small herd goes on walks with us, and our 7-yr old granddaughter...

    Hi all, wasn't sure if this would be more appropriate under management or health - I can move it if I need to. I have a 5 month old Alpine/Togg doeling with a precocious udder. Left-sided only and about the size of an orange. I have not tried milking that side at all and was wondering if I...

    Hi y'all!!! I have a doeling, about 2 months old. Lamancha/nubian cross. Since getting her, she cries/screams as if in pain when urinating especially, and some even while defecating. Diet is good hay with free choice grazing, and about a handful of sweet feed split up, half morning and half...

    One of our teenage doelings is not feeling well. We suspect she ate something she wasn't supposed to eat on pasture. We tried giving her slippery elm with milk and also charcoal tablets but she still isn't eating, she is just forced to drink milk with slippery elm to give her liquid. This is the...

    Hello everyone, So technically I've had my Nubian for 3 years and raised goats as a teen in 4-H. I have been fortunate until this year to never have any health issues with my goats. I recently bought a 1 month old Nubian doeling. She is from a tested herd and from a doe that was vaccinated with...
