Does anyone else have goats with dry flakey skin in the spring? Seems like the same thing happened last year here, even the young (2-3 months) ones are scratching like crazy. - I have BOSS in my feed mix, but should I give them corn or vegatable oil as a grain topper? - I don't see any evidence of lice, but my eyes aren't what they used to be. I've got pour-on cattle dewormer and was thinking about lining them all up and pouring on a dose.(Purple strip down white goats, should look really appealing.) This should take care of any external parasites, but I'm not sure if it's safe for the 2-3 month olds. I've got a little bit of the lice powder left, would this be safer for the kids? Is lice infestation more common in the spring or do goats just get dry skin after shedding their winter coats? I've got nothing planned for the day, so dealing with this is on my "to do" list. Too bad DH has to work or I'd recruit his help, but guess it will be me and the kids.
