I'm not sure if this is a problem or not: Our 4 month-old LaMancha kid has started slobbering her cud out of the corners of her mouth. Not large amounts - it just looks like she's chewing a wad that's a little too big and it oozes out the corners.

She's otherwise, VERY healthy, happy, curious, silly and full of spunk.

But I've not dealt with a goat who did this before. Is this normal? Or should I keep an eye on her?

Thanks!

(We're off to a 4-H goat show after church today - so I won't be able to check back in here again until Monday.)

Well, we found out what it is. We cleaned her up extra good for a 4-H show. When we washed the cruddy cud off the corner of her mouth I saw that she had somehow slit the corner of her mouth on something. Noow we're cleaning it and dressing it with antibacterial cream 2 x a day.
