Give it space,time and plenty to eat. Is it in with anything? If not give it a buddy!I myself just got a new sheep Friday,Today was the first day that she came even close to me to eat her grain but she has been eating hay on the opposite side of the field since yesterday. Don't corner it or go toward him,just be patient.

I always try to send some feed and hay home with any that leave here. So that they won't be to stressed at least something will be familiar. I would give him about 6 cc's of C&D ANTITOXIN and maybe try to find him some green yummies of some kind. I know that may be asking a lot right now in your area, but maybe you could find him something good to get him going again. And as Wisdomseeker ays, a buddy would be a good idea.

Might I suggest that it could be stress? Just a thought. It takes a while for them to settle down, and while they are nervous they will not eat. Just an instinct that they have that will scare the begesus out of you. However, Rose said it all. If he gets hungry enough, he'll eat. But a dose of probios wouldn't hurt. These can dramatically calm a goat down, and he may just get happy enough to eat.
A friend will calm him even faster. Be careful though, he may spend more time fighting than eating!
