Did you know that goats love animal crackers?
Well, ours do anyways.
If they had their way, cookies would be the staple of their diet.
But much like deep-fried cheese sticks and ice cream in the human diet, grain-based treats should be minimal on the menu for goats. As ruminants, they really should be eating mostly grass and other green plants. Grain causes acidity in their rumen. So alas, ’tis but a once or twice a day treat for them.
It is really difficult to resist their pleading ploys sometimes, though. Such cuteness!
