Yesterday's ADK Goat Club meeting was a great success! Goat owners from all over the North Country were in attendance. People came from Canton, Peru, Mooers, Tupper Lake, and Saranac Lake. It was a great group with lots of long-time goat owners lending advice to the new-to-goats group.
We had a successful raffle with many prizes given away and lots of money collected to help future club activities. The prizes were: "Goat Song" book, bottle of "Love My Goat" wine and Bully Hill jelly, goat pack saddle kit, $25 pizza gift certificate from Birch Bark Deli in Vermontville, hoof trimming kit from Hoegger's Goat Supply, and 3 bars of goat milk soap from Rose's Goats.
We talked of future meeting ideas, lecture topics, and workshops. I have begun planning the next meeting. It is tentatively set for March 2012 and the topic is "CAE Prevention". Stay tuned for more information.
