Pain (especially abdominal pain), cold, not feeling well in general. You need to get a temperature on the goat Use a thermometer rectally.
Call your veterinarian. If you do not have one, start looking, now. A normal goat does not behave in such a way, and if you have little goat experience, you need a medical professional. Speaking on the phone with your livestock veterinarian will not cost you anything, and will determine if the problem needs to be seen, or the vet can give you advise and/or medications without seeing the animal.
What is the goat eating? List everything in the daily diet and amounts. How old is the goat? When did the behavior start? What is that temperature (this is critical)? What has been done to treat the goat, if anything?
Sorry just not seeing this...my enternet has been off lately. I told them what all he eats then was told to watch him more closely .....LOL! Realized he was getting a hard on and was check it out but I didn't expect. The rest....nasty...then afterwards he ****** my boots
Yea....they do make that motion when they ejaculate or attempt to urinate on their faces. From your original post, I suspected it was something your goat was doing all day, standing hunched, not a momentary movement. I am glad you figured it out!
Aren't bucks nasty? Maybe your is just sexually maturing? When you said it was a male that appeared to have abdominal pain, I wondered if he had a blocked urethra which is something wethers can be at risk for& can be extremely serious. I didn't think that many people have bucks! My goats are San Clemente Island Goats-a buck & 2 does. In this breed the bucks smell considerably less disgusting--I can smell him from 10 feet away instead of 30! He's very handsome-have you seen photographs of the ones they used to trophy hunt for their horns? What kind of goats do you have?
