    Does anyone else have a kid that licks you? My little Oreo just loves to lick your hands,arms,face or anything in reach, like a dog would. Is it normal, or are my goats just a little weird?

    I have a year old buck that loves to lick people. Like yours it does not matter where, hands, face, arm, anyplace that he can reach skin. I thought maybe he was after the salt on our skin but even with minerals available he does it.

    Was she a bottle baby? My bottle baby will lick and even start to bite a little at my legs. It drove me crazy because she wouldn't stop! She does better about that as she gets older, she's 9months now . She will also try and lick my face, it is the only area that isn't covered up since its winter.

    Nope, she is still nursing off her mama. She also uses my finger like a pacifier, I never knew a herbivore's teeth could be that sharp! :shocked:
