Hi all, I am still stressing about my fat Boer doe. I cut her back to just 1/4cup of alfalfa pellets am and pm and limited hay at night, but she is still a fatty and I think it's a strain on her legs. I can't limit her hay much during the day because I don't want to limit the whole herd. When she walks, I can see a fat roll behind her front legs and can just barely feel her pelvic bones. I just keep hoping if she loses some weight, she will be more apt to play with the other goats and be more comfortable. The rest of the herd is definitely not starving, but poor Aoife just can't catch a break with her slow metabolism. Anyway, I was wondering what you all thought about switching her from alfalfa pellets to straight timothy pellets am and pm. I have to give her something because everyone gets dinner and breakfast grain and/or alfalfa pellets. I don't grain in a group, they all have separate buckets in their designated areas. Should I give it a try? I figured timothy pellets would have less calories than alfalfa. Thanks group. Sorry for being a crazy worry wart about my goats.
