I picked up a pregnant goat yesterday, I was supposed to be checking her out to purchase, turned out to be more of a rescue (owners both fighting for their lives in hospital recently). Anyways, she is TOO thin, no one knows when she is due, and I think I was fed a line as to how old she really is. I took her anyways, just had to get ONE animal out of that situation and reduce the burden.... She is very docile and sweet. I need to know how I can safely get some weight on her before she delivers, she is obviously giving everything to the babies. I have her on good grass hay free choice (will try to find alfalfa, may not be successful in my area) and today I gave her a cup of alfalfa pellets and half cup of grain three times. Also a grapefruit-size pumpkin and later, a couple cups of chopped rutabaga and mangel (fresh.) I have more pumpkins and lots of rutabagas and a few mangels left. I don't want to give her too much at once. I also have some dry beet pulp available. I can get to the feed store on Friday, hopefully, and will put up some free choice loose minerals, baking soda, and salt (she has access to a block right now.) What else can I do, and is there anything I am doing that I shouldn't? I will go out later tonight and give her another small snack. Tomorrow I will make a couple pies, so will have apple scraps for everyone, the three goats and all the chickens. Thanks for the help.
