Unusual freezing weather and snow here in north Texas. Bringing baby goats inside.

Does anyone's goats eat snow for hydration? Will I need to daily dump warm water into their trough to melt the ice and snow?

To a small degree, yes, but they still definitely need water at least once a day.

Thanks for letting me know. Being in Texas, all this snow is very unfamiliar to me. First time I had goats and this much snow.

I recently checked Wanda, and her udder is filling, which indicates that the little male managed to breed her. He's IMG_1043 on the Feb. 4 post but mostly grown up now. Attached is a picture I took the day they bred. I noticed my goats tend to sit next to each other after mating.View attachment 80263
Wanda had two doelings! Born 2/20/2021. Daddy is the young Nigerian dwarf.

More babies! My dapple Nubian doe Eshki yesterday gave birth to a buckling and a doeling! I really like their markings. Attached are Eshki and her babies, as well as the Nigerian dwarf daddy, Kylem. He did his job well, and all the babies born these last 2 months are his. And he's only 13 months old!

Eshki's producing enough milk that her kids can nurse and she still has enough for me to milk her. 🤠
