    Hello, I've posted a few times regarding my old toothless goat and some have suggested that a senior horse feed might be easy for him to chew. Can anyone suggest a specific brand and formula that would be palatable and on the soft side? Thank you!

    I have heard a rumour going around town that corn bloats a goat. Now, if it's true... that's what I am asking you. I have my goats in a pen that has barely any grass so we have to feed them grain and corn. Do you think I should just feed them corn or grain? Can ya help a girl out?
  5. Beginners Goat Raising
    Alright, I'm still confused about goat feed. It looks like I will be getting two weaned doelings (around thanksgiving maybe). Will they need packaged goat feed or is that more of a specifically meat goat thing? Also if I feed them commercial food will they still need mineral supplements or...

    I ate some chicken alfredo with peas that my friend/neighbor made for me; they were some leftovers she had from the previous night. I also drank a diet Mountain Dew along with it. :yum: It hit the spot and I don't think I'll eat for another day...

    So I'm kind of at a loss. Several years back, I lost a young wether to urinary calculi. It wasn't our first wether, and we had never had issues before, but it was extremely traumatic. It broke my heart, and I vowed to never own another wether. We had his sister for quite a few years, and when we...
