    In the extreme cold I give my horses some warm corn oil in there grain, just to warm then up a little. I know goats are not supposed to eat to much corn, but was wondering if I could give my little buddy the same treat with his goat food??? Or if not, does anyone have a warm goat treat recipe?? Yes, my critters are very spoiled!!!!!

    I have read a lot of goat owners give their goats warm molasses water. I haven't tried it yet but I'm sure mine will love it [​IMG]

    When I go out to feed I take a bucket of HOT water and pour it in there grain. Though I do not have goats the horses and llama love the hot grain mash.
    My grain is oats, pellet feed, beet pulp, and a very small amount of sweet feed.

    Bheila is right on - go with warm molasses water instead. My goats will NOT eat a mash...

    Be careful, though...remember anything in excess is not a good thing.

    Mine also like steamed veggies, LOL.
