    4 week old Nubian make. We got him one week ago. He has a bump?/bite? On the tip of his nose. I can't remember if he had it when we got him but I noticed it it 4 or 5 days ago. It doesn't see to be getting bigger or changing, but I'm worried it might me something I should treat.[​IMG]
    Any ideas what it might be and what I should do about it?

    I'd just keep an eye on it. You could spray some BluKote on it if you want. Can't hurt.

    I use Vetericyn for any little bump/scratch/bug bite/etc on my horses and it works like a charm. Should work on goats too.
