    I have an almsot 6 week old buckling that just doesn't act like all the rest of the kids. He nurses good, eats good, and always has his head in the mineral bucket so I don't know how he could have a deficiency.
    Well I guess he has acted like this from birth but it is really getting to bother me. He stands all hunched over all the time, keeps his tail down unless he runs. He doesn't run often. He doesn't play with the rest of the kids. If all the moms and kids are out in the sun he is usually in the barn by himself munching on hay. He talks to me and doesn't seem to be in any pain.
    I don't know if it is just his personality or if maybe something is wrong. I just don't like the way he stands and how he stays by himself all the time.
    Any suggestions?

    hmm that is strange. I know each goat has their own personality but he sure isn't being normal.

    i wish I had some ideas but I can't say that I do :sigh:
