hey all.

this is my first "summer" having goats.
every single one of them is PANTING non-stop. yes, its VERY hot here already...but is this normal? i can only imagine how bad it will get in a few months....will they die on me??
should i hose them down every day to keep 'em cool?
any suggestions??
thanks,

If they do not go to the shade that could be a problem. Mine live in the shade but still breath fast and will pant for a few minutes sometime after grazing in the sun. The black ones are the worst. I would try to find a way to make the shade appealing to them.
