As I hear this silly storm role in I'm about bored to tears. I should be in bed as I've got about 3 hrs before I gotta get up - but can't seem to fall asleep - wondering if this "storm" will blow anything in...so I'm web searching...mostly craigslist and ebay... Saw tons of barter boards - heavens they are SO AWESOME - wonder if we could ever come up with something like that. For instance I got a little buy happy and bought 100 some odd feet of plastic chain for my goats in two sizes and that's A LOT of collars...my goats really never wear collars...okay they pretty much never wear them --- wondering if I should sell, or barter. Have tons of the black "show tote" type things I sent my Secret Santa for Christmas - pretty handy - just fill with whatever and haul from the tack room/barn/feed room to the milk stand/field/show --- whatever. Anyone here ever "bartered" goats? I mean everyone is always selling and buying - ever traded? I've always been afraid to ask if anyone wanted to trade - but if I've got what you want and vice versa - why not? Why's it seem to be "taboo"? (not me necessarily and I know it's not UNHEARD of...) Started working on my website - didn't go too far. Added back a guest book if anyone wants to sign it (please do - looks so lonely!!!) - added a few VERY candid shots from today - mostly to do a mass update of pictures for the goats I'm selling to make room for new babies. Actually have a few serious bites on them already. So Yo-Yo, Nessa and Tory may be sold - if not they're up for sale as is Voltaire - gonna be hard to watch them go, but want to keep my herd relatively small - got too big last year. MY "KEEPERS" are Dream, Grace, Fanci and Special - for now anyhow. Kidding seasons about 50 days away - wonder if I'm even close to ready, probably not . Anyone have any big plans for 2009? I'm going back to NY to see my family (where I'm originally from) - haven't seen them since I graduated HS. I'm going to go back to school (I have my Associates but will turn it into a Bach or get an Assoc in something else) - I want to get another horse and ... my son starts school :tears: Ok - talking too much - hope all is well with yall. Take Care!
