for people who love the littlest dairy goats
Can you post a few pictures from different angles?
These are not the best, but she would not stay still, lol. She is in our backroom because we have her separated from our wether, hence the weird floor.
sorry pics didn't post ? I am adding them to my page pictures in an album (I think) because they don't seem to be posting here?
If you could get someone else to hold her attention while you take pictures of her straight from the side, that would be helpful. The two from the front are probably distorted, so I'm mostly looking at the one you took from above. It looks like she is underweight, and her head looks too big, which could mean she's been malnourished. Do you know if she had a severe case of coccidiosis as a kid? The can cause scarring of the intestines, and they can have trouble absorbing nutrients forever.
Her hair also looks kind of thin and wispy. Have you looked her over for lice? They're very tiny, and you'd have to separate the hair and stare at specks for a bit to see if they move. As I get older and my vision gets worse, I have more and more trouble finding them, and my vision is not that bad. I only started wearing glasses three years ago. Lice are just really small.
Have you checked the inside of her eyelids to see what color they are? Are they red, pink, or white?
Does she poop pebbles or logs?
What type of minerals are available free choice? Brand? Loose or tub?

I'm so glad that you realize you should not breed her at that size.
I'm not sure that copper deficiency would stunt her growth. You'd be more likely to see bowlegs or a sway back or some other bone malformation.
Were you able to get new pictures?
