    That's so funny you ask. I just finished giving my new girls both frozen (after they thawed!) organic cranberries and some of the dried ones when I ran out of the others and couldn't get any more right away. There was a chance one of them had a urinary tract problem when they first arrived (we kept seeing her continually squat to try to pee but nothing came out) and so we treated all 6 of them with some herbs in their food and the cranberries. We think it was just the stress of travelling to get here, but didn't want to take any chances. Anyway, they LOVE those cranberries (both kinds)!!!

    I can't believe you don't like them. Let us know how the goats liked them
