    Eggplant is a member of the nightshade family and supposedly toxic to goats. I am not sure I would feed it if they were not already used to eating such plants. You could plant the seeds and compost the rest.

    I don't know... if I'd risk giving it.....to your goaties..
    If it is over ripe, it also may have some rot.... :worried:
