Gray streaks in fur

I have noticed one of our goats Bo-Bo has gray streaks in fur. He has black fur but now turned rusty.
Is this a sign of copper and zinc deficiency? I have copper bolus but I haven’t given him for a while
because it is very hard to give him. He has a twin brother Luke. He seems doing okay. What are those gray streaks? I also have noticed Bo-Bo's back hair has been standing up. Thank you for reading this. Aloha form Hawaii.

Thank you. So, he might recover after getting more copper? How do you give copper bolus? Does someone else open goat's mouth and you shoot with a shooter? Do goats need to fast before getting it?

Thank you for your tips. I didn't know capsules can be opened. How often do you give to your goats?

Thank you very much. I am sorry for the delay. I needed to take my husband to a hospital. He had a surgery this morning. I gave all of our goats the copper bolus yesterday.

Yes. I have loose mineral out free choice and mineral blocks.I am just curious. What kind of loose mineral do you use?
