    I research things to death. Even DH's doctor tells him to listen to his "doctor" meaning me. LOL LOL

    SBC can you start a thread on the Bio Worma? I think that might be worth watching and we could all keep an eye on it.

    I hear ya! Problem with goats is so few goat vets. Selenium for most is a necessity yet unskilled vets that treat goats always say the minerals should be enough. Goats can be difficult that is why more people rely on skilled goat people and there are so many goat forums. :/

    I got a laugh out of the shelter thing. We hear this a lot.... "so and so neighbor has no shelter for the cows, they are out in the rain, and snow"... I laugh because having goats that think they will die without shelter (not our Kikos) it would seem strange. Fortunately I lurk in cattle forums and learned otherwise. ;) I like cattle, alot! I don't know anything about them in any real sense but I like them! :DI don't want any but I am fascinated by them! Just too big for me. I think they are amazing animals.

    Goats aren't difficult except on the internet.

    Someone I know put on FB that she solved her dogs skin problems with only 2 applications of Neem Oil. Humans can use it too she said.
    She said the "only" downside to Neem Oil is the smell.
    Hmmmm
    I've heard of a few other potential downsides.
