As a first time goat owner, I have come to the conclusion that I should have bought older does, not 3 day old bottle babies!  My boys had a hard first 2 weeks of life due to my lack of knowledge and…Continue

"My internet connection is so slow I am unable to upload photos at this time... :-(  I looked at images for milk goiter and that's it!   Good to hear it will clear up on its own.  Thanks! "

"These are not the best photos but in 2 of them, you can see that the area between the mandibles, where the salivary glands are, it's tight/ clean.  The swelling is definitely in the throat area.   "

"Hi Deborah, Thank you for the lengthy reply.  I will review the section on the specific parasites.  I got them from a breeder, but I thought at the time she had too many goats for the area. I was concerned about parasite overload/…"

"From what I'm reading, the soft puffy area under the jaw is the only symptom. Is that correct? If yes, it could just be a milk goiter. I've never had one, but they are supposedly not a big deal and will just disappear by 4-6 months of age.…"

Bottle Neck?

As a first time goat owner, I have come to the conclusion that I should have bought older does, not 3 day old bottle babies!  My boys had a hard first 2 weeks of life due to my lack of knowledge and I probably starved them for a few more weeks for fear of overfeeding them and then getting scours again.  The are now 13 weeks old. They seem to be the same height as other 12 week old kids that I have seen and they are in good flesh, playful and have good color to their eyes even though they are…See More

"I don't have experience with those plants, and I have not found any good lists online that are accurate about what is and is not poisonous to goats. It's pretty well accepted that goats don't usually eat things that are poisonous…"

"Also, I don't see hickory trees on any of my lists...good or bad.  My neighbor is cutting down some hickory trees and he said I could have the leaves if I wanted them. "

Safety Margin for Gardenias, Elderberries & Tall Lettuce

I have searched many websites and many of the posts on this forum but have not found the answers to some new questions.  Gardenias:  I have a large gardenia bush in the middle of the pasture that I am going to fence in for goats.  Are gardenias safe for goats?  I do plan on fencing it off but need to know if it's safe  or not so I can plan on fencing options.  Elderberries:  I have about 6 elderberry plants on the new property.  I do plan on fencing them off so I can harvest them but again, I…See More

"Thanks Deborah, With only 4 goats (currently), I can't imagine that 6 acres being eaten down very quickly.  But I do have a 1+ acre pasture that the horses have grazed down to the nub.  I have moved the horses off of it and want…"
