Granted....I tend to likely give my goats more hay than they actually need but I like knowing that all 6 girls are getting. I have hay in racks in 4 different areas outside and nobody except my boys have gotten grain since July. Miss Penny is bred for a Feb 9th due date and since her last weight I got in July she's put on 9 lbs! Nothing but browse and alfalfa hay....she had stayed at the same 35# weight from January to May and started gaining since then...she's a long doe, solid and a good height at 15 months old. She now weighs 60 lbs :shocked: Thats just 10 pounds less than Binkey and she's 5 1/2 years old. Penny's mama is a long, dairy doe but I figured it would take Miss P another year to get this much growth. I give 3 flakes in the morning and if I totally fill the racks in the evening, I don't give hay until the following afternoon....how do you keep a goat from getting fat on hay alone?
