    Hi everyone, My name is Trevor and I don't have any goats yet but I am considering it. I was just about to sign up for goat web when it shut down :?
    Someone on another forum said this would be the new hangout if the other site didnt get back online. So I hope this gets to be as informative as the old one was.

    Hope to get some good answers for some noob questions real soon.

    hey welcome firegoat! Glad to have you with us and when goatweb.com does come back online I will post an alert on here.

    so what kind of goats are you interested in? Dairy or meat? will they be strickly pets or do you have any plans for showing or other aspects of raising goats?

    feel free to ask questions.

    I am interested in Nigerian dwarfs for pets and dairy purposes. Maybe even to make a few bucks from breeding them, but that is the least of my worries for now. I have heard that goat milk is easier on the stomach then cow milk, and since I have recently started getting an upset stomach from cow milk I figured maybe if goats milk would not bother me then I should get a fresh supply of it. :D

    Being a little more self reliant is another plus, just because I can go to the store and buy a gallon of milk doesn't mean I have to. ( I also have a few laying hens for this reason)

    Anyways, thanks for the welcome Stacey!
