I had a black goat get the orangy/red spots on her when we changed feeds. when we went back to the original feed they went away.
i was excited I thought she had gotten moonspots

I don't really think those are moonspots. But they could be. To me it looks like what black goats get when they are copper deficient, but in spots instead...

I doubt she can have a copper deficiency at that age. I don't have very much experience with that so maybe someone else can help...but I'd highly doubt it.

If her sire has moonspots then I betcha she has moonspots too! If you could clip her we could get a better idea and if you find a pic of the sire would be helpful also.

I think those are moonspots!

Yeah, I remember reading that on her website before. It makes sense because the kid(s) get whatever momma has and if she doesn't have something they need, then it'll show up. Yeah, that makes sense. Besides a funny colored coat, is there another sign of copper deficiency? I heard somewhere a bald tip on their tail???
