Hi Dan and Tammy! Yes your goat will probablly become good friends with the newcomer. However I can't say that he will stop crying. I have three goats and they cry when my mom or I leave. They just get really attached to us I guess! Urinary Calculi, also know as kidney stones, is when the goat gets sandlike crystals(calculi)in the urinary tract due to dietary imbalance or drinking too little water. Some times the goat will pass these stones, while other times surgery is required to help the goat. Urinary Calculi can be fatal and quite painful for the goat.Signs of Urinary Calculi are difficulty urinating,kicking at abdomen, loss of appetite, and arching it's back.

Your Goats A Kid's Guide to Raising and Showing, is a great book for beginners or anyone who loves goats. It is writen by Gail Damerow and has been quite helpful in the years that I have raised goats. Well have to go. I have a goat meeting to go to. Good Luck!
