Welcome! Goats are great!
One thing new goat people may not realize is that goats don't have a "shut off valve" when it comes to food. They can and will eat themselves to death with grain. They don't understand stopping! So, only feed them their own ration and don't leave extra grain out. Hay, free choice is ok. All the fresh water they can drink is essential, too.
(this is something that I try and tell new goat owners- one person around here left an entire bag of grain out for their poor goat and went out of town. The poor goat died)...
