Sounds like they just need a little trimming. Do you have a book to show you how? Ask the person you bought your doeling from to show you how to trim hooves. It should be done about every 6 weeks.

I trimmed the hooves they will still need more attention but I didm't want to take off too much. I have 9 other goats from the same heard all withn a month of age but this is the only one that has the hoove problem. I am new to goats. Does the hooves differ greatly between goats or is this one just hasve bad hooves.
