    So my son is doing a new 4H project. He's done pigs (and will continue to do them), geese, rabbits and of course the chickens which he still does. He's earned enough money from selling the chicks and eggs to buy a couple of angora goats. I'm not having any luck finding a great forum like at BYC. Anybody know of one?

    When i first got my goats i love the Backyardherds forum. Join and scroll down to the goat sections, its about mid way. Tons of great people, great informations, and easy to use.

    They have a LOT of knowlegeable people who helped me out a lot when I got my first goats (I'm TigerLilly over there, too).
    Do as much reading as you can & when you get your goats (you need TWO), just sit back & watch them. It's awesome to see the little kidds play!
    Good luck!

    Ditto about backyard herds but I have also found The Goat Spot to be as great for goats as BYC is for chickens. They have a section for fiber goats there.

    www.TheGoatSpot.net is a great resource for goats. There is a mod there who runs a fiber goat 4H [​IMG]
