    Hi,
    I am new new goat mummy, living in UK.
    Only had kids two weeks, they are nearly trained to pee pee in sand trays, Iam bit obsessed cleaning up berries, sad I know, but trying to keep stable and paddocks clean.
    I don't know how to post a new question on this forum, any help

    Hi, thanks, I just getting bit more confident in hoof trimming, but taking it slow, as not sure if doing it right by the book !, don't want to cause them lameness.
    Not sure about trimming heal much yet either

    This forum has a number of people here, from experienced to decades of "goating". You will find our moderators to be a wealth of information, and also so more experienced folks as well. We all try to help as best as we can, know that we are not vets, and sometimes that is called for. Have fun with your new goats!

    Taking it slow with the hooves is a good way to do it. That way you and the goats are getting used to it. You want the hoof bottom to be flat when you are done. All it is is experience, you will get there!
