    Here is the one "project goat" who is a registered alpine. She needed some TLC, as I have never seen one this bad before. She was very thin, and terrible wirey hair.

    Here is some before pictures:



    Here she is now. I wish the lighting was better so you could all see how shiny and sleek her coat is now.


    I give her a mix of Farmer's Best ram and ewe, alfalpha pellets, lactating goat, black oil sunflower seeds and timothy hay/pasture. She gets her Purina goat minerals free-fed.

    She looks GREAT! The black oil sunflower seeds - where do you get those? We feed medicated goat feed, and have loose mineral, but I have a doe whose coat looks a bit rough. We don't know if that's just her, or if she is lacking something. But I've heard good things about the black oil sunflwoer seeds.

    I got these at (dare I say it?) Walmart. I got the ones that are coated with vitamins. They were a bit more expensive than plain black oil sunflower seeds at my feed store though.
