I have a black and white doe that has these rust colored areas on her coat and was wondering if this looked like copper deficiency? I have ordered the copper boluses from Jeffers because we are in a copper deficient area as well as a high zinc area which apparently is a copper antagonist. I just wondered what y'all thought?

That isn't bad but it could be copper deficiency.
Yeah it doesn't look that bad to me but my buck definitely has the fishtail look but he's brown so I can't tell.

She sure has a beautiful coat! If she is def it's sure not much. Does she have any color like that under her belly?
I once had a mostly black doe but she also had dark brown spots under belly.

Thanks! I look at her and think her coat looks terrible! I must be too critical! She does not have any of those markings on her belly but don't remember the rust color being there in the past? I'm gonna bolus anyway because I think they need it.
