    Hi, my name is Wendy and we live in this little hollow on a dead-end road and have just ventured into the world of goats this summer. I love this forum and the people on it. I have learned alot about feeding & health for our goats from Vickie. Thanks Vickie.

    I have been lurking and asking a few questions on the soap forum and the cheese forum and thinking that maybe this is something that I can do with the extra milk that we have.

    Oh yeah, The goats we have are 2 Nubian doelings 8 & 9 months old, a 5 yr.old Saanen/Nubian cross doe that I am milking, a 2 yr.old Mini Nubian buck, a 6 month old Saanen wether for company and a 9 month old Saanen buck that we are keeping for a friend.
    We also raise Rouen ducks and have an assortment of show Bantams, Rhode Island Reds and 2 wonder what they are geese???

    Thanks everyone for your help and advice.

    Welcome Wendy. This is a good place to learn about goats. I raise mostly Nubians and have had goats since 2000.

    Welcome! Vickie helped me out with my first "goat emergency" when I was 14... a while ago ;). The funny thing is that i was told to "go online and search" for Vickie by the wife of a local vet who has now passed away. She told me she'd take Vickie's word over anyone elses out there - even her husband!! :) There is so much knowledge here... love reading and learning.

    Hi and WELCOME! thanks for introducing yourself, you just don't know how much it helps everyone to know a little bit abt you and your goats to be able to help out when needed. Vicki and others here have helped me so much that I rarely have to go to a vet now only for emergency situations which thank the good lord are few and far between now with good management. Which of course was gleaned from them here.

    Welcome!

    Yep, getting started with information from Vicki certainly prevents a lot of smack the forehead mistakes later on.

    Looking forward to hearing lots from you!

    Thanks for the welcomes. As far as staying warm that is only possable if you stay in the house. At my age and with my fibromyalgia (sp) this cold we are having this year is bone-chilling. Even the poor dog only stays out long enough to do his thing and has to be rushed right back in. Oh well, spring is comming!!!
    Hope everyone else up in North country is staying warm too.
