    We are looking to buy new hay for our does, and I found some mix hay for a great price but the ad says "it may contian fescue".
    I've read where fescue is bad for goats (along with horses)
    But my question is how toxic is it? Should I risk it it? :whatgoat:

    The does we would be feeding it to are due to kid the first 2 weeks in April (if that matters)

    not exactly sure if it will cause any issues now that your does are that far along but I hear it can cause abortions in horses but not sure if it does in goats
