Did you also run your fingers along the gums?Well, and now she’s decided she doesn’t like that anymore. Got her mouth open, but all I saw was green. But I really pressed on teeth and she never flinched. And nothings stuck in her throat. Guess all I can do is keep offering. Other than being skinny, she comes running with everyone, is bright eyed and looks happy.
It was a new bag at the time and all the other goats are eating it. She was excited about the alfalfa pellets and now she’s turning her nose up at those.I wonder if the grain went off (mold or rancid) and she is just more picky than the others? Have you tried buying a new bag and feeding that?
Since she’s refusing any grain/pellets at this point I can’t mix anything in. I did recheck her record and she’s actually 9/10 this year. The guy I bought her from didn’t know her age exactly. All I can do is offer whatever she’ll take at this point. She seems very bright and happy at this point.Remember that goats need more roughage than sheep so a strictly grass/clover pasture might not be enough for her to keep weight up. Another trick to try is to mix Calf Manna pellets with her pellet ration. I routinely used to give Vitamin B injections to the goats if they seemed off or didn't want to eat. It perked them up, helped their appetite, and was really good if a goat was stressed from moving or whatever. Not sure what dose would be for her.
