feed us we're hungry!

We have one skinny goat and one fat one. Sydney will eat anything. She’s a real moose and you can hardly control her. Roppongi is a delicate flower. She has to sniff and snaff and ponder and debate before she’ll take a bite of anything. By then Sydney has eaten the entire thing. So Roppongi is a skinny goat. But it was hard to determine if she had a problem we should be concerned about. Or whether she was just thin, but in the normal range.

Finally I took the time to check it out and found a great goat reference for body condition.

And here’s a video discussion.
