    If we could have some main topics posted to the tops of pages?

    I may be blind but as a "newbie" I find it very difficult to acquire basic information on goats. I search the net and dont really find what I'm looking for and I come here because I prefer to read others opinions and responses. But I find I have a hard time searching here for basic information under the categories as well. I'm in the third year of raising goats and still like to read up on everything I can, so here are the things I am interested in researching.

    1) Goat Management--Breeding plans-- How do you prepare for breeding? What should you be watching for? Signs doe has been bred? Signs your doe in in heat? How long buck should stay with does?

    2)Kidding--Stages of a does pregnancy? Signs your doe is about to kid? Warning signs in kidding? What your part is once the kid is out? What the kid may require from you?

    3)Care---Signs your goat is ill? What do you feed and how much? Basic guide to caring for your goat (for beginners)

    I would love to hear any other tips people may have, like what your routine is, your set up, toys and and other items you may have for play. Grooming tips.

    Have you tried the search at the top of the page? You can just type in key words for what you're looking for. And not sure if you know there's a view active topics at the top of the page kind of under TGS logo. ;)

    there is also the topic of the week section that has covered a lot of what you mentioned. Stacey has also put stickys up. If she feels its important, then she has made it a sticky and its always at the top of the page.
