    We have 2 young goats, and I've read on several threads that the goats need copper - different from the sheep. My daughter just got a lamb also, so I don't want to get them the same minerals. I don't want to keep them separate either, so is there a way to keep them together w/o any health issues?

    Thanks

    The only way I know of is take all the mineral & Salts out. And only use white salt and Icelandic Kelp.

    You can see my solution in the Goat forum.
