When my first goats arrived home, I had no idea what it took to raise them. Within a couple of months, one already had a broken leg from a horse kicking it and they followed us around like dogs. In fact, they knocked open the screen door on a windy summer night, and tip toed into and through the house, leaving a trail of tiny, round, black marbles and spent the night under the computer desk...quite happily, I might add!
But the complications really grew when the milking goats became a permanent part of my heart. The demand on their bodies from being in milk, being pregnant and giving birth was more than I realized and after a couple of years of raising goats, my first doe died in labor.
And it was almost too much to bear.
I didn't have the proper tools handy and useable at a split second notice. I needed my resources to be right there. I needed the proper dosages handy without searching the internet. I needed, at a glance, to be able to look through the history of my goat herd.
It was after this frustration of not having what I needed, that I began to put together what I did need. I don't waste another minute looking for records. I stopped browsing endless articles for possible reasons my goat may be sick. I completely limited my concerns I had...even about medications!
A Goat Management Binder system became my saving grace!
