"Okay, thank you! We will give one of those a try. My husband and I just applied some NuStock today and realized his hair is coming off by the handful. Yikes. What external parasite would you attribute all this hair loss to? "

"Sorry for the delay! I thought I responded to this. Did you also post somewhere else? (or am I losing it?) The hair loss is interesting. It's not exactly what I usually see when a goat is copper deficient. Zinc deficiency causes hair loss on…"

"Hi neighbor! I got SweetLix online from Jeffers Pet. It definitely wasn’t cheap with shipping costs, but it was the best deal I could find. Let me know if the copper helps your wether’s coat issues! Taylor"

"Taylor! I live in Lynden WA and could not find a source for Sweet Lix Meat Maker. Where did you find it? I’m having similar issues with one of my wethers and need to supplement copper. Will be following this discussion. — Leslie"

Hi there! I am new to this group and so happy to be here! I live in rainy Bellingham, WA and have two wethers - Mr. Brown & Al - that are about 11 months old. I am a first time goat owner who has experienced my fair share of goat complexities over this past year, and this forum and the Thrifty Homesteader site have been so helpful in finding answers to my goats' issues.Over the past couple weeks, I've noticed that Mr. Brown is losing hair on the bridge of his nose, the base of his ears,…See More
