I appreciate your help in this matter. I do believe it was a toxic plant. It seems they went so fast. One got diarrea on a Friday night and died Saturday morning, the other one had diarrea Tuesday morning and died Tuesday at noon. They both had the same symptoms. Wednesday, I had another goat have diarrea, but she got over it. All day Wednesday, I was on the phone to different animal hospitals, Vets and finally got a logical explaination from a dr out of Texas A&M. I live in Houston, Texas. I have opened up 4 more acres for them to browse in, have ordered them Valbazen (I used Safegard and was told that didn't work) and make sure they have plenty of tree limbs to eat, and of course their regular diet (corn, show goat and hay.) Since Wednesday, I haven't had another incident (knock on wood) I'll keep everyone posted if what I am doing doesn't work.
