    Our little buckling only weighed one lb at birth 5 weeks ago. His mommy rejected him and we ended up putting him on whole milk from a dairy. He has gained 7 lbs 4 oz. He is a happppy boy. We have two concerns he has never seemed to poop "regularly ". Sometimes it seems normal and sometimes it's harder( yesterday) also he has no interest in nibbling grain or drinking water. He is an inside goatie. He nibbles everything !! Else. lol what can we do to encourage him?
