Welcome to goat life , I see you are like myself and jumped right into this 100% I'm a transplanted southern boy now living in new England with my wife kids and goats. It starts with the first couple goats and becomes addictive. My wife and I also made many friends while showing but realized how some take it way over the top to serious. Enjoy them and they will reward you as best they can. It has to remain fun for all. We were also self starters and have referred to this group many times.
