Sounds like the forage might have been too rich. But you also mentioned vomiting, thats a sign of poisioning. We had anubian doe yrs ago who ate an rhododendron bush and got very ill, was vomiting frothing at mouth and dihreahh (sp) and we had to call vet.
from what I read pines don't make a goat sick, not sure about white pines though. I would try asking for a posion antidote on 911 here.
I lost all my bookmarks for goat stuff so i don't remember the posinous plants, but i believe its here in the archives someplace. hope this helps. oh, get some probiotics for the rumen to balance it out again.
