Got some sad news last night. A goat customer and friend who had purchased one of my first kids several years ago contacted me to announce she'd lost this guy. She came into the barn a few nights back to hear her buck howling and writhing in pain. She felt him all over and in horror discovered he was terribly thin. (this buck always had proper worming, proper feed/management/vet care and had never gone off feed). She tried to nurse him back but after a few days he faded fast and she had him put down. The point here is with goats in heavy winter coats now, all the more important to feel them over periodically. My friend had no clue her buck lost this weight under his coat.
