    Hi there!

    My name's Bonnie and I new here and new to goats! I have wanted one since I was a child and it was the recent realisation that my son had turned 21 and still I had no gaot that spurred me to follow my dream!! I have done sooooo much research and have read all I can find but much of it is in conflict so who better to turn to than those that have them...you guys!

    I have reserved two disbudded pygmy wethers and will be picking them up just as soon as I have finished their pen....hopefully after this weekend. I am sooooo excited but nervous too as this is a first for me. I work at a Primary school and the goats will actually be living there and doing much to help the children learn about animal health and husbandry. We already have a cockerel and his harem of hens...12 wonderful girls who are as tame as tame can be and I adore them all! I have been known as the Mad chicken Lady, now will be the Mad Goat Lady too!!!

    Welcome!!! Pygmies are cute little cub-misters aren't they? Goats are wonderful in general and you won't be sorry for your purchases!

    Goats are just the best....though most of the teachers I work with can't see the attraction! I'm running round like a dog with two tails squealing that I have reserved my goats and their response is 'that's nice dear'....grrrrrrr! :roll:

    Mind you, I didn't realise how costly the set-up was going to be...though they're worth every penny.
