What would you suggest that one feed 2 5yr old unbred nubian pets? I have a friend who's goats are pretty fat and she was asking me how to get the weight off them. They are both female and from the local petting zoo.
Thanks to you both! I thought to suggest she drop the goat text but thought to confirm it here first. If she was to feed some sort of grain as a small treat would something like flattened oats or just staight oats work??
If they are from a petting zoo, it's no wonder they are fat. Those places usually sell little handfuls of grain to feed the animals. Those goats don't need any grain, but if she insists on giving them a treat, I's suggest no more than a small handful of whole oats no more than once a day.
