Thank you Vicki for your prompt reply! No wire between toes (Thanks anyway!)It IS her right front leg, although she laid down for each birth of the triplets. How long for a pulled muscle to heal & what can I do to help make my goat more comfortable? (Comfrey?)
In the meantime, her rear hoofs are moonshaped:-as described in an earlier posting on this forum. No one in my neck of the woods seems to know what I'm talking about, nor has anyone ever said it could be a possible problem. I'm new to goats: only three years now with my 'Ginger'. How much more protein to give a goat who is already getting a large ration of Goat Chow plus alfalpha. Any 'natural' suggestions?
