We had a pair of goats but one passed away from old age and the younger one needed a buddy. So we found him a 3 year old Alpine doe and a 3 month old Boer/Nubian cross doe. The other goat is abouta yar and a half old. All three are pets. No one will be food. When we brought the Alpine home they butted heads and acted awful but she is big enough to take it an they have become buddies in a week. They snuggle up to sleep. Its very cold here - 16 degrees outside right now. The problem is the baby goat. Sonny, the whether we started with and the Alpine, beat the baby, Cher (yes we have Sonny and Cher), up and won't let her eat. I solved the food problem by making a stall only she can get in and out of. So she is getting plenty of food and I fixed a thick straw bed in it for her. I saw her pop in and out of the stall by herself yesterday. But how do I keep the bigger goats from hurting her in the pen? Yesterday I was out there and Sonny rammed her into the wall and smashed her. Should I seperate her for a month or so? She will probably be small since she was a bottle baby and the people we bought her from got rid of her because their other goats wouldn't let her eat from the trough. Shes so small I can carry her around. anyone else have problem introducing a baby into the herd? i thought they would love to have a baby in the herd. Thank you for any help!
