I understand that a milking goat is supposed to be thin but I wonder if my Windy is too thin. Her hip bones and spine poke out and she'll tear into her grain but there will often be leftover alfalfa pellets when I go out for the next feeding. She's giving 6 lbs of milk a day with one kid still nursing (9 wks old) so that would tell me she's still pretty healthy - just skinny. But she's almost skeletal. I keep my goats with my chickens and the goats love to get into the chicken lay mash whenever they can. I have the chicken feed goat-proof (knock-on-wood) now but I wonder if her occasionally getting into it disrupted her rumen somehow? I have never had goats before and have only had these since September so I haven't checked for worms yet. Could that be the problem? I guess I would be more concerned about worms if my other two were skinny but they seem perfectly healthy. Granted, they're both MM and Windy is LM so maybe they are naturally rounder? I appreciate your thoughts on this. I just don't want to accidentally overlook the signs of illness or poor nutrition because of ignorance and inexperience. Thanks!
