Anyone have a 9y old goat or older? Chiquita is my first goat, had her since she was 3 days old, she is now 9 years old. Just wondering what to expect with goats as far as ailing as they get older.
goats can live a bit longer then that. A doe that isnt having kids every year will easily live to 11-12 years old. If they are negative for CAE they should only get mild arthritis. Most goats die of kidding related problems, and castrated males usually die of urinary calculi. So a doe that isnt giving birth should last you a little while yet. Keep her up to date of her CD & T vaccine, watch for arthritis.
