Goats are in our future.

Rick and I finally decided to venture into the world of raising goats. We plan to spend this summer getting everything ready for them. My dear friends Heidi and Jan are more then ready to help me along with this crazy plan.
First thing to do is get the side yard fenced in for them. Then comes their shelter, Rick and I are still going back and forth on that one. He wants the front all the way open then add dog igloos. I want the front partially closed  with stalls. It will take a little time, but I think I will win.
We are also looking for things for them to play on. Debbie found us this play slide for 10 dollars, she
 is always on the look out for thing I might  need for the goats. I don't know what I would do with out these ladies! The test will be if they can put up with all my questions.
I just notice I didn't tell you what kind of goats we are getting. Nigerians, I really like the taste of their milk and it great for soap making. Plus they are small and easy to take care of. I am only getting two. Everyone tells me they are addicting," but I am staying at two. "This is a chant I will keep repeating to myself over and over.
I know summer hasn't started yet this year, but I am so looking forward to next year. In the mean time I have a lot to learn. Jan also helped me with that one. She gave me a goat book for dummies. My friends know me so well !
