The goats hair is turning white on her neck...normally she is as red as can be. Is this her winter coat coming or copper def?

It looks thick like a wool mixed in her hair.

It could be the winter coat. How old is the goat? I have seen their colors fade and change as they get older.
She will be 3 in February.

Nothing to worry about, it's just their winter down (fluffy insulated undercoat). All my boers get it, all my alpines get it, it's normal. It sheds out when the weather warms up.
Thank you! I was hoping!

I have been so stressed out lately with all the new animals. Don't get me wrong, I love having everyone of them, just worried about their overall health.

Just got 2 new cows a couple of days ago and they look like they might have problems. Skinny. One eye shut, runny nose. I heard it could be shipping fever.

Got off the orginal subject a bit.

Thank you for the goat info.
