I just got a one month old bottle baby. She is the only one i hve right now. Is it ok to keep her with an adult doe that isn't her mom? I haven't bought the doe yet bc I wasn't sure I it would be ok. I know i need another goat in with her to keep her company. Please let me know what you think on the issue!

If the older goat is dehorned than it would be ok, if not then be careful and introduce them slowly. Some horned goats can be vicious but some are gentle. Another kid her age would be best. Good luck!

careful not to buy to many too fast.. our first two years we already had 36... reduced the herd after that! I like how you add slowly. :)
