Into our first winter. 3 nannies pregnant.
I wouldn't get attached to the goats you may see featured in my blog. Part of the reason I got them was because I was tired of paying shipping costs ordering goat meat from California.
I realize some of you have a problem with that and I'm sorry we disagree. But I didn't claw my way to the top of the food chain to just eat vegetables. And goats are the most widely eaten animal on the planet.
The deal I make is to give my livestock a comfortable life and, if it comes down to it, a quick, humane death. These animals are not pets. They have a job to do and the final act in their employment will be a trip to the freezer. The working conditions are great, the retirement plan is a little unpleasant.
I'm not even sure why I put this section in here. After all, you're not here to read about me, you're here to learn about the joys of hobby farming and using goats to reduce the amount of mowing and brush control you need to do. But the link was already in this template and having an "About" section is just sort of what everyone does, so at the risk of looking stupid not having one, I left it in. And here we are.
Did that answer your question? You probably wanted to read what's in the blog if you're looking for the details.
If you really did want to find out about me...not very interesting, really. I'm the CIO for a medical services company and volunteer fireman. One I'm really good at and proud of, the other I'm realy proud of and look good in my turn out gear while directing traffic. Hey, we can't all be heroes, people would be driving over our hoses and just generally making a nuisance of themselves. Besides, there wouldn't be anyone to take the report. If you're interested in the fire fighting, I have a page of fire videos you can watch.
