Hey can everyone do me a favor and look at my website and tell me what you think. I am thinking it might be a bit crowded or cluttered, but I like having all the pedigrees right there. Let me know what you all think!!!

I think it looks good, although (I don't now how many pages you are alowd to have on freewebs) you may want to put each pedigree on it's own page. Look at one of my goat's pages you'll see an extended pedigree button. Ahh a fellow buck collector!

Do you know how to make links? If so you can just type "Extended Pedigree" and add a link to the page you made for their pedigree. I made a button, but you don't have to do that. Sorry I'm not a very good instructor :x

LOL, she sold today, she is a really lovely doe but I had to sell something, I will miss her though. I wish all goat lovers just had their own town or something! That way we could all be neighbors, hey I can dream can't I?!?!?

Oh that would be wonderful if you could do that for me!!!! I am actually wanting one for my website!!! Oh pretty please!!! :D :p :leap:

also, how come your prices are at $350 and up, I mean you have beautiful animals and are well worth it, but why so high, wish I could get away with selling them for that much!

Well, it definatly has to do with the current market - I couldn't get those kind of prices right now, but hopefully by spring. That's funny I was looking at your site saying to myself *why so low?* lol. My friend (two hours away) goes from $400 up. And there are certailny a whole lotta people that are lower. It really depends on how well your site is advertised, I need to start working on putting my site on a few advertising sites! I may have to make my base price $300 though, I think I'm gonna do that right now lol.

You can pm me some pictures that you would like included in the banner, It may take a few days to finish, I am a perfectionist when it comes to these types of thing lol. (I like the photos of Geisha and Daiquiri, because they are clipped and set-up) But you can add in some casual photos as well. Ok I'm done rambling :roll:

It's easy peasy - here's the problem - you can only have 20 pages (??) for regular freewebs accts. So IDK if you'll have enough pages to do a page for each individual animal w/out over doing your pages. I've done it on my website, but I've only got 7 registered goats right now (we've got 3 non-reg too and they're not even on the website, LOL). But you would just make a pedigree however you wanted it to look and paste it on a new page. Name it and make it invisible on the index list on top (you do this when you first log in is easiest and there's an eye - click on the eye next to the pages you don't want in the index)- then add a link under your buck and label it pedigree, extended pedigree, etc and choose to link to that page under the link on the left, that way it will link directly to the page.

My website is constantly in the works, I'm very unhappy with it - but honestly rarely feel like redoing it all. LOL I used to have where everything was thumbnailed and you click on it and it pops it up full - this way you don't over do your pages. (Another option - thumbnail your pedigrees and they can click on them and it will pop up larger to view - takes up much less space, and doesn't add to your pages...)

Check out Crissa's posts too - b/c there's a Banner page which links to this neat creator where you can make your own banners - tons of them. It's super easy, super addictive and fun! :)

All I can say is I'm glad you're not near me b/c I LOVE your bucks and right now, I'm already a buck collector in the works. LOL 3 bucks for 7 does. LOL

If you still need help, PM me - I can set them up for you and you change them how you want them later if you can't figure it out. You may just make a pedigree page in general if you want to remove the pedigrees and put all the bucks on one if limited to space...or upgrade and pay to have addt'l pages added.

If I just confused the daylights out of you - ignore it all LMAO!
