Does anyone have any goat links or websites?

I have a lone goat who has lice, and now I am concerned about the horses, although they show no signs.

The goat was doused as best as possible in permethrin, and given a shot of ivomac, but he still is losing hair and looks horrible.
I was hoping I could join a goat group and ask some questions.

I don't think the lice could jump to the horses? FWIW, I keep very clean stalls and horses are turned out during the day.
this just gives me the creeps. I really don't want the horses to get lice. ugh

I use http://www.goatworld.com/ for all my inquiries. There is so much info on there, and great article too. There is also a link at the top of their page for emergency goat 911 info. The people on their are very helpful and knowledgeable.

I think of it as the goat COTH!

Homesteadingtoday.com has a goat board with wonderful, friendly, helpful people.

FYI, most people say you should have at least 2 goats. They are happier that way.
