Let me preface this by saying that I am a total newbie with goats. My husband and I recently purchased two Nigerian Dwarf cross goats from a local petting zoo. They are females, about 4 months old. We've had them two weeks. The lady at the petting zoo told us to feed them a few handfuls of hay and two cups of grains per day. Mostly what I've read says that goats should have hay free choice. (They don't really have access to brush or grass in their pen.) So, the goats are used to the petting zoo where they are fed treats all day long. They are FAT! So far, I haven't left the hay out free choice because they eat and eat and eat. They never seem to stop. I'm afraid they'll get bloat or become even more obese. Instead, here's their daily diet: 2-3x a day I fill their small trough with hay 1x a day feed them a small handful of grain each 1x a day hrow a couple handfulls of weeds in from the garden Since they are browsers, is it wrong not to let them have hay free choice? How do I know if they are getting enough food? Should I worry so much about bloat, or just go ahead and let them eat as much hay as they'd like? Thanks for your help!
