Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

copper deficient doe

This is a picture of a 10-year-old that has three symptoms of being copper deficient. This picture was taken on May 23, and she should have shed her winter coat by then, but it's obviously still hanging on. Also her coat is normally very red. Note the red in her legs and neck -- that's what color her entire body should be. The final symptom you can see in this photo is that she has no hair down the bridge of her nose. Copper-deficient goats often loose hair on their face, sometimes around their eyes, so that people say they look like they're wearing spectacles. However, they may lose the hair anywhere on their face or head, including their ears.
