Goats cannot be kept alone. So he WILL need a buddy shortly. If you cannot get a goat from her, you must find another source.

 

Goat keeping 101: goats are herd animals.

My backyard flock: Five Araucana girls, two Araucana boys, and seven Magpie ducks.

Take his temperature. Goats are prone to pneumonia.  If he has a fever, is at all depressed and unwilling to eat he needs antibiotics ASAP.

Bottle fed goats are prone to pneumonia because they often inhale some of their food, and being moved to a new home is stressful, if you start to hear a rattle or he doesn't improve in a day or so a round of penicillin will usually clear it up, follow the dosage for cows on the bottle and continue until you see no more symptoms plus two days.
