Since asking whether or not goats can eat stones the goat has died- he was a beautiful old thing but he belonged to my neighbours and now I don't know what to say! It could be a horrible coincidence- he stopped bleating on the Sunday and was found on Monday morning- but the neighbours have decided it's because of my daughter and so the whole village knows too. They didn't autopsy and now it's too late. So my terrible question is- In what manner would ingested gravel kill a goat- what would happen? My daughter swears the goat didn't eat stones but she is so upset that he died. we really need to know if this could have happened.
