I have 5 kids, 3 different dams, that seem to be walking strange. They seem to be a little stiff legged. The joints are not swollen and they are my as active as others.
I have given BOSE, as we are in a selenium def. area. I have that Tuesday night. Any ideas on what I should do next ?

I'm sure this isn't it but are they fainting goats?

Do any of their parents have the same problem or has it just come along like that?

Been reading about CAE, joint ill, ect... Vitamin deficiency.
I just cannot figure what would be affecting all the babies the same way except a vitamin deficiency.

Did it all just happen to all of them? Is it happening in any certain things such as breeds, genders, or ages???

Within 2-3 weeks they all got like this. I am going to carry a few to the vet Monday. I am at a loss on what it could be.

I would try a Vitamin ADE shot. I would also give some B Complex. How much selenium have you given them?

Sounds like a full blood workup is in order.

Has anything changed with their feed or daily schedule?

Good thing you went to the vet and found out. Something like that would be almost impossible to diagnose over the internet.
