Wondering ... with this cold weather (negative 18 last night and at 8:27 a.m. is - 14), why aren't my goats drinking? I keep giving them warm water (which freezes within an hour) ... plain ... with lemonade ... with blackstrap molasses ... but I haven't seen any of them drink in 2 days. Are they eating snow when I'm not looking? They are also shivering, which I didn't think goats do. I bring them into the garage 2-3 times a day to eat (sweet feed and alfalfa pellets and peanuts) and give water, and they have as much hay as they want any time. We have 3 miniature (Nigerian Dwarf) goats. They have 2 doghouses in their goat run which are filled with hay, but the three of them prefer to sleep together in one of the doghouses (the smaller!). I have their goat run open (during this cold snap) to the entire fenced backyard, which is covered in snow. The area under our deck is open and has lots of hay in it. I also have water there, but even tho it's close to the house, it freezes within an hour. So ... any advice you have would be appreciated. Thanks.
