    :wave: Hello everyone, This is my life: I'm a Wife, Mom, Grandma, & Great-Grandma. I live in Inverness , Fl. Have 5 acres, 2 Heifers, 14 hens, 1 rooster, 1 bunny, 2 cats, 1 goldern retiever. And hoping to soon get a goat. I heard about this site from Keren. I thought it was very nice of her to invite me. :hi5: Thank you! I love the county and simply basic life. We have a gardern. Hubby is finishing college,(law) and for now we own a marine repair shop. Which is going very slow now. :( We have 3 kids, family's of their own now. Which brings me to 15 grandkids, and 1 great-grandkids in Aug. 2010. I've enjoyed looking at this site and reading all about everyone's cute goats. Maybe one day I'll be showing you guys pic's of my goat. But for now I'll just keep learning, and have to wait till after the Fair here to start looking for one. The heifers being in 4-h is keeping me super busy now. I'm hoping that the Fair will bring back the goats here. Last year was the last showing for them. :( Mare

    Thanks for the weclome. I for sure am having fun just to see how everyone here is doing. And yes I can't wait to get my goats. I know it's still in the near future, but time flys by and I'll have them before I know it. But for now I'll enjoy everyone else's joy they have with their goats.
    Thanks , Mare

    WOW sounds like you are one very busy person. Goats will give you some peaceful time and they are great to watch just to relax. If the grand kids are close I bet you would have a lot of volunteers to help you out.
