I have 3 does that recently kidded. They all seem to be copper deficient. I copper bolused black doe December 3rd 2020 and gold doe November 20th and red doe around the same time.The black one has had her black coat be red for like all winter so is it they just haven't shed their copper deficient coat yet? Their noses are balding is that a copper or zinc issue? Their minerals are sweetlix meat maker.

Bald noses look to me like they're rubbing on something. Maybe rubbing on the hay feeder or eating through the fence? I have one hay feeder that rubs the hair off the goats' noses just like that.
They eat through the fence but they usually don't ever get bald spots like this. I am pretty sure it's a copper or zinc issue.
