    Yes, but you need to figure out the feeding situation. Goats NEED copper in their diet, at a level that kills sheep. So goat feed and goat minerals need to be off limits to sheep. The goats of course should have their diet needs met. Many goats become copper deficient if fed a food exclusively meant for sheep.
