Sanitation after ringworm

My goats have had ringworm twice. The first time that it happened, I isolated the infected goats and treated the problem. I also cleared out their bedding and put down new stuff. I sanitized their trough and water buckets. Everything seemed great. A few months went by and the ringworm popped back up. Does that mean I failed to properly clean and sanitize everything from before? What are the best sanitation practices in this situation? I just wonder if I should've done more.

Fencing and grooming equipment might be the culprit here. Scrub everything you can with a detergent or pressure washer and then disinfect with diluted bleach.

I agree, but ringworm lives in the ground. and on any surface including cracks in fence post. they have thousands of spores that can be anywhere.
