    How long have you had your goat? Goats don't like to be alone. They are herd animals and they get very lonely not being with other goats. Yes I would get her a friend. Until you can do this I would give her as much attention as possible. They will get very depressed when they are alone. Normally when goats act depressed and they are not alone, I would think that something might be wrong with her and you should call a vet. Goats are very sensitive animals and they require companionship. Hope this helps and good luck with your goat. They make great pets.
