    I turned my goats out today and they browsed all over the place. In the woods and the pasture. Went out at bedtime after putting them up and one of the Nubians is foaming at the mouth. I've never seen anything like it. She doesn't look or act ill, she's just got foam coming from her mouth. What could it be?

    Did you try giving or offering baking soda?for acidosis,or she could have got into something poison to her.How often do you turn them out?If this is not a routine then they may have over done themselves.

    Turn them in the pasture pretty often, but this is the first time they spent much time in the woods. How much baking soda?
