Hi there. I'm new to the site and not super goat-experienced. I've had them for years but only a couple at a time and it's hard to learn a lot from such a small goat population! I currently have one old lady goat (Oberhasli) that I've had for ten years. She's always been pretty healthy, but this year she is exceptionally thin and it's tough for me to get her to drink any water. I give her water with molasses but the vet told me not to that for too long. She'll drink water with just plain white sugar, but I'm concerned I'll upset something in her rumen. Any suggestions or comments? Note: My outside animals are pets only ... I have a couple of horses that keep her company and decided not to replace her Nubian mate when he died last year because she didn't seem lonely (truth is, she really didn't like him very much!). Can tell I'm new to the site - left this message in the kidding corral!
