Hello All. Well I've used the blog for my first crisis and got great encoragement and advise so I guess I should introduce myself. For the past 20+ years I have been involved with horses, mostly Paints and buckskin QH's. I have 3 children, my 2 girls (18 & 13) have proven to be more interested in the farm and animals than my son (22), the computer/tech whiz. I have been married for 25 years and although he's not the critter lover I am my husband is pretty good around the farm. Last March 4th I was thrown feet first into the goat world and now I'm hooked heart and soul. My neighbor raises Boer's and she had a kid that the doe dropped and left for dead. Of course baby needed 24/7 care and I'm a stay at home mom so I volunteered to help out. Well after 3 days I was totally hooked and told her she couldn't have the little black and white doe back so I made arrangements to buy her and another young doe and the obsession began. I can't believe how wonderful its been. Another of her does had quads this February and I have another little bottle baby so our little herd is up to 3 girls. We're still learning and I want to try milking so all information is greatly appreciated.
