I have a two new goats that came from a farm that seemed to take very good care of the 180 milking goats they maintain. The day I brought Baily home she had her baby we call Nester. She is a yearling that has a fairly normal time with delivery. When we got the two preganant goats we put them in an old chicken coop that has not been used for the winter. The other goat that is still pregnant and the baby Nester seem to be doing very well. He is growing like crazy and looks great. Plan to post pics in just a bit. What worries me is the mother goat she seems to be having the following issues ** lots of hair on neck and along spine breaking off but not falling out **not enough milk to keep nester happy I did milk her for a bit in the morning and was hoping we could shre with the baby **still is having a bloody discharge after a week and a few days **was wormed about four days after nester was born **seems to caugh a bit and has had the cough even in the car when i brought her home. I was hoping that because she was feeding only one baby im might get some extra milk but have not milked today because of her having little to spare. My other goats that are not milking get about a half cut of grain a day and seem very healthy. Baily looks so skinny i have been giving her alfalfa cubes soaked in water and one and a half cups of grain mixed in three times a day and she eats hay very well. She loves the mulch hay i get for bedding as much as the other weedy feed hay i get for them. I just wondered if anyone had any idea why she would be loosing hair and having such a small amount of milk when she is bred from a herd that is meant to milk? Is that why Nester is growing faster than i have ever seen a baby goat grow he is taking it all for himself?????? Id love any ideas thanks Kaya Ps i will go resize some pics!!
