Hi, just joined the forum. Found an interesting blog post.
I recently acquired a package of their conventionally grown bagged whole carrots, so I decided to see if my goats would like them. They are being raised with no pesticides or GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Well, I may as well have been holding a skunk in my hand because they would have nothing to do with them. Fiona was raised on a porch and hand fed for a good portion of her life. She eats everything out of my hand. Except those carrots… Red is a good eater also, and will eat just about anything on the ranch. Except those carrots…
I feel the need to elaborate. I have 125 acres of perfect goat land. Brambles galore. They were free range for a while and they mainly tried to eat my blueberry bushes and spent many hours circling my house trying to figure out how to get in (they did eventually). Nothing was wrong with the brambles, goats just tend to want what they can't have.
There is just no telling with goats. If you want to show me rabbits, pigs, and chickens refusing those carrots, I'd love to see it.

I am skeptical too; the only thing that caught my eye is that the poster is very clear in saying that it is ONLY those carrots the goat refuses to eat, as opposed to other carrots. Actually what piqued my interest is that there was another person saying their dog wouldn't eat non-organic produce but likes to eat veggies from their garden. Maybe it's just poor taste
The only cure for that is hours of television radiation. And this tiny ad:
