I mean, you would think they would realize that the food is the same throughout the feeder. I just started to give the goats hay after having a fruitful summer of them eating pasture. This was the first year I didn't feed hay along with them eating brouse. I took 1/2 a flake and spread it around to start getting them used to the hay. The older does were eating mouthfuls, the kids weren't sure what it was and kept looking at me for the grain. Suddenly, the one does comes out of the feeder dragging out a mouthful to go to another spot, wasting the new hay!! Then the other doe chases the first doe with her mouthful of hay hanging with more wasted hay!! Arrgh... then because there was no hay in their pen, I become aware of how much these animals actually waste. I know it's not alot but still, I wonder how many bales end up being on the floor at the end of a season. All well, I guess I can look at it as less bedding costs.
