Free Choice Selenium-- crazy goat behavior

I got some new selenium/vitamin E which I ordered on Amazon. It has added Zinc too and I was worried about my goats being zinc deficient as well. Well I got it today and they went CRAZY for it!! They all fought over it like it was candy. Really it was like the first time they got kelp and everyone fought over it-- but almost worse! I went around to everyone and gave them each some because they were seriously fighting over the mineral feeder! I hope nobody overdosed but it makes me wonder...…See More

Just saw your friend request from Dec 2nd. Sorry I didn't respond sooner! I'm actually up in Saskatchewan, Canada so we frequently get the same weather systems as northern Montana and North Dakota. I hope they're not getting the same one right now though. Forecasted temperature is -31F with windchills of -62F. Nasty.
