I have raised goats for years and years and never got anything worse then goat pox(little blisters from the udder) But then those are not as bad as Cow Pox which I have had from milking the cows for 2yrs before I got married.
I love to give my girls kisses and have even kissed a buck on the lips(thats for your benifit Vicki:-)
As a child I used to curl up in the does pen for a nap quite often. The older does always guarded me. Was really neat how they thought of me as their kid:-)
Like Vicki said though if your goat has sores on their lips, ring worm or weepy eyes. Refrain from kissing or rubbing faces. And treat the problem quickly so you can get back to loving on them:-)
Keep loving on those goats!
