How do lots of you folks care for you goats when the weather is turning off very cold? Here it already has hit 18 and that is early for here to hit that low. Some people may think I'm nuts or crazy but what I do for my goats is make sure their hay is all nice and dry and lots of it alone with every morning, afternoon and night time I take them all a big nice bucket full of really warm water to drink alone with putting a little bit of powerade in it.. When it is down right really awful cold I go out 5 to 8 times a day to check on everyone and make sure no one is cold. If they are even low on their water I run to the house and get another bucket of really warm water for them to have. I may sound crazy but I think during the winter if they have warm water to drink alone with some powerade they will handle the cold better. I'm later on today going to go and get more hay, more grain, medicated feed and all to stock up because now the weather has been really getting cold. I'm fixing to stock up on powerade and lots of treats for my goats. Where I live and it snows I be stuck on hill for a while. I spoil my goats rotten with all types of goodies.. Getting ready for winter and I'm afraid our winter here this year is going to be out right bad..
