    Don't have time to look through all of it...but...I really like the home page, the only change i'd make is with the welcome!...I would change the color to black, the yellow is somewhat hard to look at and read. I would like more description on the buck page, but i'm sure you're still working on it. Overall I think it's coming together nicely. :thumb:

    Re: judge some boer please

    I didn't know you did art work like that Katrina? :shocked: woe amazing....you are very ...very good....here you were telling me how good I am ....wow ...you are very talented as well... :greengrin:

    OK website suggestions:
    Is there any way... to get your title heading.. North Star Boer Goats... Boer Goats in the Last Frontier centered on the top ...then maybe member USBGA..CAE tested..washington state university...and Bio tracking...be moved to the bottom of the page...put them across horizontally..

    move the welcome and picture of North Star's Zenith to the center and make the pic bigger.. ...North Star's Zenith's name is hard to read and the welcome doesn't pop out there to really see it ...
    center all wording underneath
    Maybe move the egg info to the bottom as where the Genetics was...

    Now move the Boer goats with genetics including:
    where the egg info was..


    Do the same with your other pages ...center and move the ads...per say to the bottom areas


    :clap:
    North Star Odin is a nice buck ....as you mentioned he isn't setup.....
    can't tell on his length because of the picture angle...he has good thickness...
    pedigree on his page..would be useful....

    North Star is gorgeous ...I like her...
    in that picture... she is young there .... and looks very nice.. try too get an updated photo of her....... :wink:

    North Star's Zenith is a very nice doe....she has alot of length showing...with feminine head and neck...nice level top line.. :)

    North Star Katie...she is nice to ...

    RHR Moose Street Calypso...is also nice .......... the angle of the shot.. is hard to judge her....as you mentioned before ....they are not setup....

    Hope this helps .....If you don't want... to make the changes... it is perfectly OK ...just a suggestion.. :thumbup:


    So do You only have... 1 FB boer doe?

    looks good - the only thing I would do is move the pages so that the bucks page is after the does page and the forsale page is after that.

    THANK YOU! kelebek and Toth.

    okay I will get everything centered and same colors..pedigrees, and more info is being written on a word doc in case the internet fails. :shocked: dont want to lose half a pg of info. :doh:

    thanks for the nice comments on the art :hug: , I need to get more of it up there...after the goats of course :)

    yeah I cant wait to get them all cleaned up and at the fair, I'll take pics then...there set-up anyway.

    yeah I only have 1 fb doe, star, but copper penny ranch in ID is planning on a road trip up here..and there bringing FB does to me, hopefully everything works out, because I really need more boers, to keep up with the demand, and so jack frost has something to breed! lol, odin isnt impressing me with his breeding so far, he hasnt expressed any interest in does. which is really frusterating, maybe hes more of a seasonal breeder but arent boers supposed to breed all yr??? last time I checked they did! :hair:


    well off to work on it..hows the color scheme? should i go darker?

    thanks everybody for the help, if you see something that still bugging you let me know, also what can I do with those empty boxes on the right side (they have to be in the layout)
