Goat treats

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

All my goats have different tastes in treats, it seems. Some like grapes, others crackers, some I can't get to take anything, some eat everything in sight. What do all your little darlings prefer as snacks? And what treats are best?

Hi Lynn and Happy New year!

I buy animal crackers and graham crackers at the dollar store for 89cents. They like stale cereals, corn chips and I have 1 goat that likes bananas. I have another doe that rolls the grapes around on her tongue for a while then spits them back at you.

Most favorite treat of all is unsalted peanuts in the shell. I get these 50# at a time. These are great for hiding pills too. My girls love apples and carrots too.

My goats love grapefruit, walnuts, pecans, oranges and I give them lemmon balm also. At the shows and fairs people look at me strange for giving the girls the grapefruit and when I offer their goats the grapefruit they are usually suprised to see their goats eat them too.
