Has anybody seen a problem like this - for the last several days, one of our rams is having a major problem eating grain. He takes one or two mouthfuls, then runs around shaking his head, making a sort of cough-hiccup sound, contorts his mouth all around, gives up trying to eat the grain. Some clear drool comes out of his mouth, not a huge amount though. A little bit later when we give them hay, he is able to eat the hay, just fine. Only grain is giving him a problem. He has been eating the same grain for his whole life, no problems before now. Any ideas what we should look for? My first thought was some kind of mouth problem, although I don't understand how eating hay would not bother him, too. Does this sound like any kind of respiratory thing, maybe a sore throat or something?? I am also wondering if he has had some kind of injury, as about a week ago, DH saw one of the other ones ram him hard enough to completely upend him onto his back. This weekend we will try to catch him and examine him closer in the daylight, although he is a difficult ram to catch and handle. Does it sound like we should medicate him in some way, or just see what happens? Any advice would be appreciated ! Thanks !
