I decided to start a thread and I hope it will go on for a long time! In this thread, people can post how TGS has helped them, with raising goats, or just enjoying conversations on here! So, start out with "TGS has helped me (etc.)". I hope that the TGS staff will see how much we appreciate them! :love:

I'll go first "TGS has helped me a lot whenever my goats had a sickness that I didn't know how to cure. I could just go onto TGS and post a topic, and soon I would get answers that have saved my goats' lives! Thank you TGS!". :hug:

Oh yes. And I'm sure they've saved a couple of my kids, just from the knowledge I've gotten on here.

TGS has helped me realize that not everyone is getting more city and corporate, there are still people who have fun cut up and do things everyone used to do!

TGS has helped me stay (relatively) sane. All the amazing people I've met here are really encouraging and I've grown to consider y'all family. :)
I agree Emma , i know the feeling . But i have also come to realize and accept that *sane* is over rated :slapfloor::hammer::laugh::crazy::tear::ROFL:

TGS has helped me in so many ways. Not only saving my goats, learning about feed, housing, meds, conformation, and so many other ways, but on a personal level as well. My family here has been there for me when I am having rough days, celebrated with me on good days, and given me confidence and helped me find my self worth. We've laughed together, cried together, and I, or my herd, wouldn't be the same without my TGS family :)

Everything I know about goats has pretty much come from the wonderful people on here. I would be lost without you TGS. I constantly reference this site, even just to double check myself.

Same here, 100%! They offer so much encouragement and confidence. I've been having a really rough time of it the past few years, and TGS has pulled me through it on many levels.

TGS and the fine folks on here are priceless! This is the only forum that I belong to and its my "go to" for any questions that I have. We have been raising goats for 8 years and I learn new things here all the time. Plus it doesn't matter if it's meat goat, show, dairy, fiber, or pets. Everyone on here wants what is best for their animals and they give advice accordingly. I know a few farmers that have a "live or die" attitude and you just don't find that here. I raise goats commercially for meat but they are important to me and not just financially. I have several that if you took the dollar value they were worth and tripled it...they still wouldn't be for sale.

Thank you TGS and a big thanks to all that have helped me!!!!:smile::applaud:

TGS is a life saver! Literally! I did a TON of research before getting goats - but some things just needs hands-on experience... and usually those same things thus require some guidance from actual people! My first kidding was not uneventful - but TGS members were right there with me in the barn! Since then, this site has been my go-to place whenever I have a question about my goats. Plus, my friends all think I'm nuts... so it's nice to know I can come here and share my goaty escapades with folks who "get it". :)

I LOVE this forum, I've learned so much from TGS and there are so many wonderful people.
You guys are like a second family to me, I don't know where I'd be without y'all.

TGS has helped my goats stay healthy. Whenever I have a question I go on here and ask it, and my goats are better or the problem is solved in minutes. I've learned so much more than what's in the books, I've gotten "street smart" and learned how to "judge" goats and everything.. I've learned so much!! THANKS TGS!
