:groupwelcome: Yes, cute! The fish tails are just beginning, well done @mariarose, as usual! Zink seems okay, that shows around the eyes, they say. And the hoofs seem rather well groomed; if you can give them a piece of rock or concrete to jump up on, they will do the hoof maintenance very much by themselves.

But your camera caught them hungry; can you offer them hay, leaves, twigs? That is their natural diet.

What are their names? Have you actually trained them to jump up on something? That is a natural trick for them, most goats love it! :)

Welcome to TGS. We are glad you are here. There are many of us in the sultry SouthEast.

Do you have either of these 2 minerals available to you? They are higher in Selenium than many are but still very balanced.

The goat in the background is standing on a piece of marble which seems to help their hooves. They are too skiddish to do anything hands. We are making friends with them slowly.

They are great jumpers all on their own! We had to build another platform because the nanny (front right) hogs everything! Right to left, Diamond, Bessie, Opal. Not seen, Billy, our whether. Terribly original name, I know.

I think we give them Mannapro? Copper is listed at 1600 units, I think.
