Kinder Goat Breeder
One of my bucks, Phantom, has started doing something strange when he eats. He goes to his grain dish, grabs a mouthful, and then like- holds it in his mouth and shakes his head a little. He then chews, kind of slowly, and swallows. Another common course of events is he gets a mouth full, buts the bowl off the wall and then pushes it around to floor as he eats if the bowl was fortunate enough to land upright. I don't know if this is just rutting buck weirdness, or maybe he's having trouble chewing? Swallowing? I don't know, but it takes him much longer to eat than my other buck, Cullen, so I end up having to stand there and fight off Cullen from taking Phantom's food and fight Phantom to stop him from knocking his food dish on the ground. He is very interested in food, always running into the barn when it's grain time, and eating branches that I give them everyday. I also checked, because I know that swallowing problems can be neurological, whether his scurs we getting too close to his skull, but that's not it.
