I’m pretty new to this whole goat thing. I currently have 4 goats that are 8 weeks old and I and worried about them being outside with the temperature dropping into the upper 30’s. They do have shelter and I provided them with a heat lamp as well. Can someone let me know if I should bring them inside or will they be okay?

They should be ok. You have provided them shelter and a heat source, just make sure that the heat source is high enough that they can't reach it. While they need ventilation, it needs to be draft free. We do worry about our animals, but they are tougher than we think.
