    I would like to see a conversation on alot of items to think about when we are new to goats, or have just received new goats. I got goats about 2 months ago, and love the site, but had to read thru alot to find bits and pieces to help me out just starting. Alot of what people talk about is for more advanced for someone just looking to find out the size of a fence, heat or no heat, etc...

    Turtlebutte, sometimes is easiest if you ask specific "What do I need fencing wise for 2 pygmy bucks?" You'll get lots of answers to those! :wink:

    Yeah, definately agree w/ ya Liz. There's just so much stuff a new goat owner should know it would take forever to type it out on here. I would do a google search on your breed and new goat ownership etc. It should come up with some good websites.

    the goat sense 101 carries a lot of good information.

    If you have specific questions that would also be helpful to us in helping you.

    Check the Kidding Koral if you have questions on kidding -- lots of good information on there in "stickies"

    I send all newbies to It's all there and easy to access. Looks they are downsizing, or retiring so I hope they continue the website, and I hope everybody makes a little donation to keep it going. Good luck with your goaties...and certainly ask any questions you have...lots of experienced folks here!
