    I just got off the phone with the goat vet at pilchuck vet clinic in snohomish washington. They are hsting a clinic done by the author of a book called sheep and goat medicine ( i think his last name was Pugh) Its it going to be held at the clinic in their new meeting room on saturday feb 16th. She said it was an all day thing with a lunch break in themiddle. She said he would talk about goats mostly in the afternoon, mainly focused around parisites in our area and other things specific to this area. I had her take my adress for a postcard to be sent here. Im sure if you called and requested the same she would be happy to do so. If you're not already on the mailing list.
    Thought this would be of interest to a lot of you.

    Pilchuck called awhile ago, they haven't confirmed the date yet. We should get a postcard by the first week of Feb.

    Stacey I don't know what you did to fix the log in part but keep up the good work! :thumb:
