    I noticed yesterday my Saanen has a bluish purple tongue. I think at least one of my new Nigerians as well but not sure on him because he is new and really have not paid attention to his tongue. The Saanen has some dark crusty stuff around his nose.
    At first I thought is was because they were eating the manna pro minerals but now not sure. I will call a vet tomorrow.
    Ideas?

    I would just contact the vet. Best to have someone physically looking at them.

    Right behind you
    I have a bunch of goats with purple tongues (or at least purple areas on their tongues). They're all descended from a particular buck I had for a few years.

    Yes..many goats have blueish tongues..but if it is new color to the goat then having a vet check would be a good idea
