"That sounds like lice eggs, if they are stuck to the hair rather than the skin."

Crusty bumpy legs

Hi everyone, my goats are doing well, but missing the vegetation that is around in the Spring and Summer.Question for you all: my four wethers are healthy and just got their deworming and immunizations. We found one lice on Frankie, but the rest were looking good. Well, Frankie now has itchy legs. He isn't tearing them up, but when I was petting him and scratching his legs this evening i noticed that they are covered in little bumps. The bumps are small white and hard when I pull them off to…See More

"I have never heard of a case of it in goats, and Goat Medicine says that there have been no cases in goats that have been confirmed."

Lyme in goats

Hi everybody! My boys are doing so well. I really appreciate all the helpful advice I find on this forum! At any rate, I have found a little info on this but just wanted to put the question out there and see if anyone had any experience.We live in PA, where we have a lot of deer ticks. I found one on my boy Frankie's ear yesterday and tried to pull it out. It was not plump yet and may only have been there a little bit.I am curious how worried I should be about Lyme in him. Anything to watch out…See More

Deborah Niemann-Boehle replied to Rebecca solomon's discussion Is my goat too skinny?
"If a goat is really thin, and they are getting enough to eat, then it is usually worms and/or coccidia causing the problem. That would be the good news. A wasting disease like Johnes would be the bad news, but parsites are much more common."

Rebecca solomon replied to Rebecca solomon's discussion Is my goat too skinny?
"I actually have Corid for my chickens so I'm alright there. He really does seem healthy other than being skinny. I keep a close watch on his poo and it also looks good. Nothing odd, just grassy like my bunnies.  Do you think I should give…"

Deborah Niemann-Boehle replied to Rebecca solomon's discussion Is my goat too skinny?
"Yes, he definitely sounds too skinny. If you have other goats to compare, that is a great way to figure this out. Sounds like the other two are in good shape. When kids are weaned too early, they are also missing out on the antibodies in the milk,…"

Is my goat too skinny?

Hey there all! I just want to start by saying that I love love love my ND wethers and am so glad to have them!Just a question about weight though. My Sonny is the runt of the pack and gets pushed around a little. He's fine and seems happy enough, but to me he feels super skinny! His little bones pop out all over. He is one who was pulled from his mother at about a month so didn't get much milk. I have two of their brothers who were with mom for about 5 months and they are very solid. Sonny's…See More

"Goats can be really hard on each other, but like Julia said, they usually get it worked out. Yes, they could hurt each other, but that's really rare."
