I have a three year old that I've been noticing for a few weeks that his fur is gone in little round spots I'm not sure if it's just bug bites but I'm adding a picture..does anyone know what this is...I'm asking here first...if nobody knows I'll have to contact my vet...please take a look

The most likely culprit is Ringworm, which is a fungus, not a worm. Apply anti-fungal ointment (athlete's foot ointment).
That's exactly what I thought it may be but I didn't know how to treat it...THANK you....where could this come from do I need to look around for how he got this...just purchase athlete's foot ointment? Do you know how many times I should rub it on...thanks

Just put on daily until gone. Down here that used to be a common fungus for outside children to get. Blu Star Ointment will also work.
Tell your boyfriend goats don't have tires to check air pressure in.:)
