We just started in goats last spring and have had really good luck with them, but a few things have popped up and I was wanting to glean some of your wisdom. First-Our two Boer does looked really good over the summer, but now their coats are getting rough and dull. The one doe has fur sticking out all over. I know they're probably putting on their winter coats, but other people's does don't look like that. I did try worming them, but that didn't seem to help. They're not too skinny or too fat and seem in good health, I'm just not pleased with the condition of their coat. Any suggestions? Second-We found a beautiful Boer Billy, fullblood registered. He was bred for lots of muscle and fast weight gain which is what we wanted. When we picked him up I noticed he had just a slight runny nose which no one seemed too concerned about, but when we got him home he had a really runny nose and a cough. The snot is clear and no fever. When I e-mailed the owner she said that he often got runny noses and it wasn't anything. But, that didn't ease my mind any. I would sure hate to lose him and I would hate to think we spent all that money on a goat that has a genetic weakness. Any ideas as to the underlying cause or cures? Thanks!
