    So I have a nanny goat that is acting weird. She is really stiff legged in the rear end. And lays down often. Is still eating a drinking. But her legs are super stiff and he back looks hunched. We are going to take fecal samples to the vet tomorrow. And our 1 year old buckling is starting to look the same??? Any ideas???

    Do you have white tail deer? That is a classic symptom of Meningeal Worm but that is only in areas where there are white tail deer.

    Have they been vaccinated against Tetanus?

    I agree with the Menigeal Worm, if you have White Tail Deer around.
    If you search on youtube for meningeal worm, you'll find a lot of videos and you can see if that is what you've been seeing.

    I have an abundance of both dear and snails, so I saw a lot of it in past years.
