    Hi Everybody!

    My name is Carisa. I live outside of Attica, IN (about 30 minutes west of Lafayette). We live on a farm where we raise Dairy goats (and a few Boers) Breeds incluce: Sable, Lamancha, Alpine, Nubian, Nigerian Dwarf, a few Oberhaslis, and Mini Manchas, and now 2 Mini Oberhasli little girls. We also have Recorded Grades. We are trying to get the breeds down to Sables and Saanens along with just a few of the other breeds. We have somewhere around 100 goats and have had over 60 kids born here this year so far. Somewhere around 10 more due to kid yet.

    We also raise Belted Galloway Cattle (yep, the Oreo Cookie Cows), Pedigreed Standard Rex Rabbits, Chickens (chicks coming end of April/1st of May in the following breeds: Cuckoo Maran, Egyptian Fayoumis, Jersey Giant, Salmon Favereolle and Turkeys Bronze, Royal Palm and Bourbon Red). I have 15 little chicks right now that are 5 weeks old. Can't wait for the others to come in.

    I work at a Vet Clinic as an Vet Assistant, Kennel Worker, and General whatever they need help with. Working there has been a huge help with managing all of our critters. My mom manages the goats while I am at work.

    WELCOME Carisa, We are so glad that you are here with us. :wave: :wave: .

    WOW it sounds like you are all very busy.

    Years ago when my DH was in the Military we were stationed at Ft Ben. I have to say I truly believe and I tell everyone that people form Indian are the NICEST people in the world. I mean they go out of their way to help anyone. I really do miss it there, but it sure does get cold.

    I am sure you have noticed, we love pictures, so bring them on. :leap:

    Thanks for all the welcomes! Well, I would go take pics today, but we are supposed to be having severe thunderstorms. So, I will try tomorrow. The cows are starting to look great out on the green grass with their pretty white belts.
