    I got lots of good advice and help from you all and even copper bolus' for Molly.

    She is still with me.
    I gave her the copper bolus on the 6th of August and I also gave her an ivermec shot for possible lice as she was so flaky.

    She is still skin and bones and bloated from malnutrition but her hair is growing back in.

    My next project is to get her eating again. She eats but not well. I spent a bunch more money on weight gain stuff to top dress her food and like all the other stuff I have tried she will have none of it.

    This is for horses and it smells very yeasty. I thought she would love that but nooooo. RATS!

    She does love her alfalfa though. You would think that would put some weight on her but it doesn't.

    It usually take a few tries to get a goat to eat something new. Give her a little time and she may decide its good.

    I've found if you shove something in their mouth a few times, often they will decide they like it. lol
