I have a doeling who is about 6 months old. I recently noticed the hair was receding a bit just above her nose. Well it only seems to be getting worse. I don't see any signs of lice, mange, etc. She is the only goat of 5 that has this problem. Any ideas? Oh, and she is a boer (or Boer mix).

What's your hay feeder like? A couple of my girls have worn spots on their noses from eating through the bars & some dont.
Can you post a pic?

I will try to get pics this afternoon. She is my smallest of the kids, and just doesn't seem to be growing as much as they are. Maybe she's just a runt?

Copper deficiency, Zinc deficiency, Selenium deficiency could be a lot of things. Are you sure she is getting enough to eat? Do you have a good loose mineral out? Have you done a fecal including coccidia lately since she isn't growing?
