We have recently encountered a problem that we have not seen in 20+ years of goat production. After clipping some of our show prospects, they had a "bumpy" appearance. On closer observation, the pattern of bumps followed the pattern of black/white pigmentation of the skin. At first, I thought it was an optical illusion, but you could actually feel the highs/lows. The goats do not show any discomfort or other signs of illness. This symptom appeared to day in less than 12 hours in one of the wethers. This particular animal
was clipped for show Friday, June 30, and was slick and smooth until this afternoon, Monday, July 3. Does anyone have any information on this phenomenon and/or the cure for it? Thanks, -D-
