    I have 2 mini nubians and the doe feels boney and I want to give her something so she will pick up in weight. What should I add to her diet? She had plenty of orchard hay, beet pulp and grain and I have wormed her once. I know they tend to look boney, but I wonder if she might be dehydrated or something :? I see her drink water and I have put water with electrolights in a bottle before and she went crazy for it.

    Isn't Calf Manna really expensive?
