It's a pretty nice day today, so I decided to take the goats out to the apple tree and let them graze. Twenty minutes or so later, my dad came outside and told me to move them, because he had sprayed Roundup© on the weeds over there. One of my goats, BB, had eaten some of those weeds. Will she be okay? Is there something I need to do? Help me, I'm SOOOOO worried! :(

Unless these are very young goats, I have some doubts that they actually ate the weeds that had been sprayed. Mine will not eat anything that has been sprayed with any herbicide. They smell them and they walk away.

It has been a day or so since he sprayed them... And I saw her eat them, which means the smell wore off...

Unless you're talking about the watered down stuff you buy at Wal-Mart, the smell does not wear off for weeks - trust me on this. If your Dad sprayed with the Wal-Mart version of Round-Up, your goats will be fine.
