Hi, My goat Cleo is deciding whether or not she wants to be nice to me. For the most part she is pretty good. She sometimes tries to jump on me or bump me in the butt. Since she has been bred (we think she is) she is starting to get nicer and easier to handle. Today she wanted me to rub her. After a while, my fingers turned black on the ends due to the dirt and oils from her and her mom's coat. When she smelled them she kept trying to lick off the black stuff. I would have let her, but I was afraid of losing a finger. We have free choice minerals and hay and baking soda. Right now the minerals could use a 'freshener' as they have been in the cup for a while. Jason puts minerals on their grain/alphalfa pellets when he gives them treats because they do not go to their minerals very often. I just gave them a bit of BOSS and alphalfa pellets as a treat and because I wondered if she was trying to get at the oils from her coat that were on my fingers. What do you think is going on? Is she just being strange or normal or is something missing in her diet? Thank you for you responses.
