20 May

It’s crazy everything that a copper deficiency causes in goats.

Just before I got the copper capsules down them, I noticed that Cutie’s wattles were losing all their hair.  Naked wattles are not attractive.

I’ve wondered how long it will be before I can start to see an improvement in their coats and eye color.

New hair!

Just five days after getting the copper capsule, her wattles are already starting to get new hair.
