I don't know why this year seems to be soo tough but once again I need advice. Ember(nubian), my 2 yo ff dropped on Friday(she's at day 149 today). She was starting to look thin as her pregnancy progressed but once she dropped I could really see how thin. I can't see ribs but can see her entire spine. Background on her; last winter she was tough to keep weight on so I chose to wait until this year to breed her as a 2 yo. As spring approached she was still on the thin side. Vet did fecal and she was carrying a parasite load. Wormed with ivermectin. she still didn't gain weight...another fecal...worms. Once again vet said ivermectin...month later worms. FINALLY, he decides she is tolerent to ivermectin so he switched us to cydectin. Which worked wonders. By July she was beautiful and did well at a couple shows we took her to. So, I flushed her and wormed her one more time and bred her thinking that we'd finally nailed the problem... For feed she's getting almost 2 quarts of a textured 18% goat feed top dressed with 1 cup calf manna, 1 cup of alfalfa pellets(daily), and free choice 2nd cutting clover/orchard grass hay. Feed mill recommended mixing a tablespoon of flax oil in to increase the fat in her feed. So, I started doing that.Coat is starting to look rough. Uggg. Other than that she's bright eyed and has a very cute ff udder. Eyelids are a little bit pale. My plan is to pull the kid(hopefully one) at birth. Take another fecal to the vet and probably worm her again. I'm really afraid to increase her feed to much more with her being this close. She does have a shorter,thinner coat and I think that might account for the weight lose with the drop in temp. Any advice would be helpful.
