excellent advice on here, you seem very responsible and willing to ask for and take advice. You will make an excellent horse owner. On the goat topic- let your dad know they can be little monsters (as one of my professors says, that is why they are the sign of the devil!). Mine used to get out of the pasture and dance on my car hood a lot, and eat the garden, and the horses' tails. But I've had some that were well mannered and stuck with their horse buddies all day causing no trouble. They'd be in more danger from coyotes though, than your horse. A lot of people have them to protect valuable sheep as the goats faint when a predator comes, the predator eats the goat and the sheep are safe.
