    Last winter I acquired a tiny little fellow that just will not shed out. I like to brush and polish but I did clip Cisco a few weeks ago because he looked so uncomfortable. Now that is growing out and he has these ugly little scruffy patches of brown hair in his lovely black coat that just...

    Farm name---Any suggestions???

    My daughter is needing a farm name for listing at the county fair. 4H kids will be taking some of our little band of geldings. I used to plan to use Huron Valley Miniatures but my daughter is in another county and we do not want to instill any type of rivalry as the schools systems are VERY...

    Next Goat question---feeding too much?

    Could I be feeding too much? I give my new "friends" about 16 oz. of Buckeye goat feed in the am and another 16 oz in the evening. I put them out on clover and grass. Little "Baby" can pretty much go any place he wants too but does not stray far from the doe. Doe is as tall as my minis...
