    So my blue roan baby Nubian is changing color. She is changing from blue roan to red! Which is fine but, her papers say blue roan and she’s turning completely different. What do I do about her paper work?

    How old is she? Is she turnin a true goat red? Or maybe she is gettin rusty colored and needs coper? Or somethin else?

    They can change and really surprise you.
    I'd do 2 things in this order.

    Give copper, because to me that looks like a copper issue. Perhaps give it in the form of the Replamin Gel Plus, so it stays balance with other nutrients. The dose for that is 5 cc every day for 5 days. After that it is 1 time per week.

    If that doesn't work...

    Call ADGA. Since this does happen, they have to have a procedure for it...
