Its the texture, almost pig hair feel to it and her tail is off looking off i dont know if they shaved it or if it looks somewhat like a fish tail beacuse of a mineral she lacking. Previous owner did say she gave her copper last april. She was tested by previous owner before purchase i can get her retested next month when the budget restarts. Same with fecal. So i call and schedule it for her as long as dh aproves. I was thinking about getting so calf manna as well. The pervious owner provided me with some records she had on her as well. I can also ask if sge has past test results and other medical info if need be.

The other thing about her coat is that on her neck it is pretty thin.

Putting weight on a milking doe can be darn near impossible. If she's turning everything you are feeding her into milk, you're not going to put weight on her.

A fecal is important to make sure you're not just feeding the parasites.

Do you have a picture that shows all of her?

When you say grain, what exactly are you feeding? Grain can mean so many types.
