    Chances are in any event he is fully weaned now. If he has been nursing off his mother all this time the chances of you convincing him to take a bottle are slim and none. How old is this goat? Just feed him good hay and some calf starter and he should be fine. Give him a shot of CD/T vaccine as soon as possible if he hasn't been vaccinated already. CD/T is for tetanus and enterotoxemia (clostridium perfingens)
