The weekend is almost here. I can't wait to go to "Goat School" in Maine. I missed it last year and made sure I was on the mailing list. 5 hour drive, but I know it'll be worth it.

Here's a link, if you've never heard of it.

It's basically two days of all you could/should ever want/need to know about owning goats. I am also staying for the soap making class on Monday. Woohoo! so excited :stars::cool::stars::cool::stars:

The Spauldings have done fairs all over Maine (etc). I remember meeting them back about 7-8 years ago when we first thought of having goats - I think it was at Maine's Fiber Frolic. They used to have Angoras and meat goats. Which is how we're at the place we're at now with Milkers and Angoras.

I hope you have a great time at Goat School :)

Hi Katrina;

Looking forward to meeting you tomorrow.

Goat School has been around since 2004 and we've had hundreds and hundreds of people from all over the world... yes the world... Mexico, Canada, Nigeria just to name a few. Unfortunately we are better known across the United States and Canada than we are here at home. Saint Albans Maine is just 15 minutes from Interstate 95 at exit 150. Half way between Waterville and Bangor. Please check out our website www.goatschool.com because we are doing a School in Minnesota in two weeks... possibly one in Dawson Creek Canada in Sept. ( more info coming) and one confirmed in Hillsboro OH in late September. Please spread the word.

Thanks!

Those pictures were taken at one of our Goat Schoosl a couple years ago. Lots of fun.

Everything is ready for tomorrow... Looks like we'll be in the barn but around 4:30 we'll head out on a "field trip" and do some goat milking. That's always exciting. Sunday will be hood trimming, ear tagging and vaccinations. Our friend Tina has been saving cadaver hooves to practice on.
