After Three Months

21 Aug

One of the weird things about the copper deficiency is that the goats lose their color.  Seriously.  It happened so gradually, I never even noticed.  Or when I did see Haley had a big light patch on her side, I was just confused.  Lily gives a good example of this color loss.  It is really noticable around the eyes.

As the color fades, it becomes like a silvery patch around the eyes.

She had copper given to her in May of this year, and here’s how she looks now.

Lily–August 2018

It’s unbelieveable.
