Started getting crippled in his front legs about a month ago. Got worse and could not get up without help. No use letting him suffer.

No external wounds. Must have all been internal. And yes. There are minerals in the feed and purina goat mineral free choice. Not a mineral or hoof problem. Something started happening about a month ago and has gotten worse. Buzzards are getting some expensive meat today.

To me it looked like his front legs would not do what his brain told them to. Yes he was healthy except for his mobility. How long do you think his horns were? He was going on 2 years old.
