    I thought I read somewhere that goats could not handle oak leaves/twigs. It may have been sheep, but I just dont remember. Any help?

    Most oaks are fine for goats. The Red Oak is one that is poisonous to them. Our place is covered in post oaks and a few burr oaks and they have no problems with eating the leaves, acorns, etc.
