    Yikes. I about fell over when I saw that. My first thought is cancer. I would see what a vet says.

    We haven't checked with a vet yet. We have been keeping it clean and being the doctors ourselves. washing down, scrubing, and keeping ointment on it and believe it or not it is looking better. some have came off. We've giving her red cell and mineral block is out. Could be what cross creek was saying. Thank you all for your help. I'll keep you all posted and try to get some updated pics up by the end of the weekend.

    The block is better than none at all but I would suggest finding a loose mineral...goats seem to be able to get more out of the loose than the block.

    Maybe it is mites? Just a thought.

    One of my goats had warts when I got her. I put her on epsom salts in the water until I could get her on dolomite. They started drying up and falling off in a few days and have not returned.
