    Hey Everyone,
    I probably look like a stranger here, lol, but seeing as so many familiar names and people really makes me feel like I'm scrolling through Goat Web's pages again. *sighs* I've missed my goat nutty human friends. I also see many new members. :) Since it's been over year a suppose I'll give you a little run down about me. I talked to Stacey a while back and kinda filled her in. I had a very hard round with the goats around kidding season last year, and by the end of the summer I had lost 5 of my beautiful nubians. My 3 best does and 2 of thier kids. A couple to freak occurances, and the rest to the barber pole worm which infected my pasture after I RESCUED a malnurished Alpine. I honestly thought that was my sign to give up, but something told me to stick through it. I cant live with out my babies. Anyways, it's been almost a year now, and things have leveled back out and I'm enjoying life as goat nanny once again. You live, you learn, and you have to have them to loose them...

    I have 6 adorable nubian girls and one boogery little nubian wether. Hee hee, you guys just have to see his face and you'll know what I mean! Two of my girls are expecting sometime in the next week! :leap:

    Mary and Glitz are my preggers girls.

    And then the yearling girls are:
    Sonata (Snotty)
    Alegra (Get it? they are sisters, snot and alergy medication? ha ha, they were spring babies)
    Minuet
    Spotty Dottie

    And then of course my whether, Jude who is almost 5 months now *sniffs* he's growing so fast ;)

    Me myself personally am doing well. My dairy (cow)shows have taken to better hieghts and the state 4-h is now sponsoring me to several leadership conferences around the US. I'm also applying for a conference in Tenn. this April the top leaders in every 4-h division, of course mine Dairy Science, I wish it was small ruminants, but I my Jersey's hang the moon for me too. :)

    I'll try to stick around a little more. My internet situation is more stable now. I'll try to get some pictures up soon of my "kids". Especially those expecting, I probably wont be able to shut up about them. LOL

    How is everyone doing these days?(((hugs))))

    Congrats
