Some of you have mentioned keeping your goats on small dry lots, what do you do to keep the mud down? Do you do anything extra for hoof care? Do you lime or otherwise treat the dirt regularly? I much prefer ratios of no more than 10 head per acre which eliminates all bare spots except in front of the barn door which is easily rocked to keep them from sqishing through mud. Fencing this new place is not going very fast so we are into the winter dampness, rains, etc on small, bare dry lots. The yards get raked almost everyday so there is not an accumulation of berries, but the mud is terrible sometimes and of course they don't just want to stay in the small barn. It is on a slight grade- no standing water and some areas are higher/drier than others but still damp, sometimes sticky earth. I fix them an iodine foot bath every once in a while along with more frequent hoof cleaning to try to prevent rot from the wet/dirt. Also am extra careful with udder care. Any other tips or suggestions?
