    I have one boer that still has her undercoat. We brushed her the other day and goat a big handful of fiber. All my other goats have sleek summer coats, but this one goat still has a rough thick coat. High temps have been between 75 and 95 for at least a month here. I got her perhaps a month ago and she has had a worm problem which I am still working on. Should I be concerned about her not shedding yet? Does it indicate some other problem going on?

    No don't worry about it. I still have the same thing going on. I really believe it is because the weather is SO weird. Cold then Hot as _____. Ever. Just keep trying to get it off. You can use a dog under coat brush, it works great.

    some of mine still have their winter coat till July each year. This year is the first that they got rid of the undercoat before June.
