Amber Waves Pygmy Goats Copper Sulfate

Hi, I just thought I would let everyone know who was the 'newbie' asking questions. My name is Kerrie and I live in NE Ct. We have only lived here a few months(7), my husband got transfered here with his job. So we moved from west central Missouri to Connecticut, BIG change! Anyhow in MO we had a pygmy(Ginger) who was a Easter present(instead of a rabbit) and then of course she was lonely and my daughter, Alyssa (11 yr) wanted to show dairy goats for 4H so we bought 2 Lamancha sisters Sunny and Delight. When the big move came we had to sell our livestock, chickens and all. Company wouldn't pay to move them , just dogs and cats. So now we are starting over. We have 4.5 acres, less than half of what we had in Mo. Before the move I was a gardener at a botanical garden near KC,MO. I have a BS in Agriculture emphasis in Horticulture from Central Missouri State Univ. Right now I am not working too far to drive to garden like I was working at and refuse to go back to retail. So goats will be my time consumer , besides gardening. I have only one goat(Oberhasli wether, named Bubba) and he is very spoiled but a real sweetheart,he is in harness training right now and doing well. And a trouble making Border collie, TJ who is working on obedience and will start on training for herding this fall and some agility training. I am hoping to find 2 or 3 does and 2 horses before the end of fall. I guess I better shut up and go. It is nice to meet you all :0)
