We'll be pulling for the little fella.  Hopefully this makes him very healthy now.

Our boys were not disbudded/dehorned.  Those kiko's have gigantic horns...but are extremely docile and hard to rile even when in rut....those darn Boer Bucks are just the opposite...meaner than a wild boar hog when they choose to be.  Timmy was the meanest buck I ever came across.  What he did to Tadpole, was just absolutely awful.  After that, none of our bucks were run together.  Roady didn't go back in with Taddy and Prince until after they had healed very well from being castrated.  BoCephus never got the chance to be mean to any of them, or tear a fence line down.  Bo was a good boy, but I didn't take any chances after being beaten so many times by Timmy.  Really put a bad taste in my mouth for the Boer goats after that.

I keep my boys together and so far have not had a problem. They do spare, but not bad enough to hurt each other. I'm sure I will run into issues at some point.

Here is hoping the Cocci treatments do the job. (I think??)  He is looking/ acting/ feeling better and has had 3 treatments now.

Keeping the intact males together can be risky.  I used to keep my Ram and Buck together and they were fine.  Then we had an unusually cool July and they both went into full blown rut and my Buck was mortally wounded during one of  their brawls.

I guess the Ram hit him broadside and he could not get up.  It was awful and we euthanized my beautiful boy Cry  The Ram was hornless too.  Can't imagine the damage if he had horns.

I guess we were lucky that way...Our boys didn't mind going back to their own pastures.  Once upon a time we ran our bucks together...but after Timmy went Rogue and we castrated Prince and Taddy, we ran them separately.  Though Roady (my avatar), was a good boy and never ever did any thing wrong, he got to stay with Taddy and Prince.  BoCephus, no way, he stayed in his own pasture far away from Roady.

I am hoping that once he is home and has to go back into his own pen I can keep him there  Grin  Once they live with the girls it isn't easy sometimes.  We may have to run some electric tape to discourage his trying to get over....

If it's a browning greenish color that's food induced.  Have you changed hay?  Grain?  I don't like giving the cocci med's unless you know for sure.  It really does a number on their immune systems.  If you do it, just make sure you're giving probiotics and electrolytes.  Have you tried the Nutri Drench or Pepto on him?
