    Hello everyone, my name is Ashlee H and I live in SW Louisiana. I have been raiseing goats for about 5 years now and have been showing for about 4 years. I use to have several Fullblood and Purebred Boers, but sold them as they were getting too high maintanance (especially in our hot, humid climate!) and wanted to start breeding for healthier, hardier, meatier goats - so, I kept only the best of my does, and sold the rest! I currently have a small herd of percentage and commercial Boer does (along with a couple of exceptional Purebreds does) and recently got a new Texmaster meat goat buck to bred them too! I am hopeing for hardier, meatier kids this next year out of him and my does and I can't wait!!!

    I also have a small herd of dairy goats as well - Nubian and Alpines! I think my favorites are the Alpines, as they are so sweet and beautiful, but I love my Nubians for their personalitys and beautiful colors!!! Couldn't imagin my herd with out them!!! :love:

    I also have a few other critters including - 5 dogs (2 Great Pyranees, 2 Red Heelers, and 1 Beagle mix) a couple barn kitties, 2 Rex rabbits, and lots of chickens!!! I also work at a vet clinic as an assistant and just love it!!!

    This looks to be a great site with tons of great info, and I am sure I will learn alot on here!!!
