Help! I have a crazy billy goat. I nearly didn’t buy him because of his poor condition, he was kept outside 24/7 in a 15’x15’ chain link pen and no shelter from the elements for probably 2 years. Anyway, I chose to rescue him. So I have spent many months getting him healthy. After a lot of TLC, he’s now in good condition, low worm load, coat is good shape, has a copper bolus, etc. He actually is a beautiful brown goat underneath his nearly bleached white coat when I got him . He has his own barn, and 1/2 acre good hay, minerals and forage. But we have two problems, his hooves and he is CRAZY and mean. At first I thought rut was making him crazy, but my girls are bred, and he’s still crazy. We tried putting a wether with him and he nearly killed him. He has taken down my 6’ husband and son. If we put grain in front of him, we can clip a lead on him. But any handling beyond that is like trying to lead a bull. It’s gotten where I will not go into his pasture unless I clip him and tie the lead to the fence. I spent months giving him treats, and he would let me pet him (through the fence) and then for no reason out of the blue, he will ram the fence. He’s nearly broken my hand doing that. Is it possible to tame him? Second, his hooves are a chronic problem. He has dry ground, but he gets the hoof scald on the outside of his hooves. I trim the hooves, and cut out the pockets monthly and koppertox them, but it keeps coming back. So this week I am scrubbing with iodine, and applying koppertox daily for a week. The skin under the part I cut away has hardened and dried, but how do I know it has healed? TIA for your help! Also, I’m waiting for some antibiotics to come in, I will start him on that per vet’s advice.
