My young Billie Nubian goat is drinking his white urine - is it urine and why is he drinking it?

If its a male goat, he is probably drinking it. Male goats will drink their urine and spray themselves with it to attract female goats. Its not a big deal, he will do it for the rest of his life.

Goat urine can be white depending on its mineral content. If he he consuming high levels of sodium or calcium it could be whitsih in color. Your goat is probably instinctively trying to reclaim some of these essential minerals.

Male goats do drink their urine. They do this and then lick themselves to spread the odor on their fur. The female likes the male that smells the worse.

Don't get a male goat, becuse when they mature they put urine on themself, and they stink after that.

Goats really like salt! They search for salt as much as possible! Since there is salt in urine, the goat will drink it, so don't worry. To be honest, drinking urine isn't that harmless at all! It just tastes horrible! (I haven't drank it! I read it off somewhere!)
