Raising goats is rewarding and entertaining. What’s not entertaining about goats is their ability to get hoof rot, or hoof scald rather quickly. This condition, sometimes called thrush, can leave a goat very tender-footed and lame. A goat that doesn’t feel good won’t move around and won’t eat well. If you notice a goat that isn’t putting weight on a foot, check them ASAP for hoof rot. The sooner you treat it, the sooner they will feel better.
