    Hi! I'm new to the goat community. I recently got 2 pygmy little girls. We've had them for a few days now with no issues. Yesterday I noticed the smaller one (June) was starting to act kind of sluggish and had foam like bubbles coming out of her mouth. I asked around and someone mentioned that...

    Hi! I need help ASAP! Yesterday evening our oldest nanny goat, Berlin (5 years old) had triplet doelings. This is her 3rd time having kids, but first time having triplets. The last born baby, Percy, is the smallest and has been acting “weak” since she was born. We made sure her airway was clear...

    I got Chloe on August 18th 2018, bottle fed with another goat, Faith. I'm not 100% on all of the information of the parents or the herd they came from, just that they are from different does but the same buck. Chloe seems to be a Lamancha but may have Nubian in her, Faith is a cross between...

    My young buckling(5 months) has been having Diarrhea for the past 5 days now. I thought he was scouring but even after giving him just hay and mineral, it hasn't changed. Its like a pudding consistency. I've only had Kikos for about 2 1/2years now. Never had an issue with Coccidiosis but now I...

    Yes, 12 lb triplets. Poor mom! This afternoon after work I checked my kidding barn to find 3 new additions. Unfortunately, two of the new bucklings have weak back legs and were struggling to move around/nurse. These boys are MASSIVE (boer/nubian) and so I was wondering if their size could be...

    I apologize in advance for this long post! Our nigerian dwarf goat gave birth for the first time to triplets 3 days ago now. The first day, all 3 of them were doing great. I witnessed each of them nurse from mom and I'm guessing they all got some colostrum that first day. The next morning I...

    My boyfriend has a goat that back legs started to give out and more recently I've noticed he is loosing mass in his back end and falling down more often. When he is standing still his back legs seem stiff and he stands with them more apart probably to keep his balance. If he gets excited and...

    My husband and I tried to put scrapie tags in three adult goats yesterday. My husband has had Guillain Barre and his grip is not much stronger than mine. I'm a 64 year old women with severe arthritis in my hands! We could not get the tags in. We practiced on a tag and could only get the tag...

    So we live up in Minnesota. It's rather cold out but my goats all have a very thick coat. Today when I went to grain and feed them my youngest didn't come for her food. I checked on her and found her laying down standing with her front knees but just laying on her back legs. I thought her back...

    We are boarding a few of my friends dairy goats over the winter months. When my dad got up (the goats are on his farm) and went to do goat chores in the morning, he noticed one of the dairy does didn't want to stand. She would eat and drink, but not want to stand. He called my friend and she...

I held him for an hour, then made him a little pallet to lie on. His little sister is fine, she's jumping...
