    I'm new to goats. I just picked up a boer doeling and buckling. The doeling is about 5 months old. She seems fine. Perky, eating well. The only thing is that she seems to have a little discharge around the eyes, particularly the left eye. She isn't blinking or anything like there is something in it. It just runs a little, moistening the hair below the eye.

    Anything to worry about? Anything I should do?

    I would just wash it with warm water a few times a day. I would bet there is something in it way above or below. If you want you can always use some saline solution and wash the eye really well.

    It could also be a allergy to something at your place.

    How about pictures of your new goats?? :shrug:
