Im going through pictures and sending out release forms. Not all pictures offered will be used, as we have limited space , but I appreciate everyones contributions!
This book has been in my head for a long time. Its so strange and exciting to see it coming alive! When I thought about this book, it was to be just an emergency guide. Something you can have on hand, in your barn, truck or Medicine box. A book that is easy to flip to what you need with no clutter. I have tried to maintain the integrity of my dream. I have so much I want to share, it was hard to pick and choose what was important for THIS book. NO clutter. flip and find with ease, this is important, especially in an emergency. I did include a few pages to read on, like CL and CAE. While many pages I wrote will not be in the book, I will find another way to share them...maybe start a Blog page ?
Saying good bye can be the best thing for you but can also be very difficult. Several years ago I started a Face Book page to help other goat owners in times of need. "Goat Emergency and general questions" It was a wonderful group and grew leaps and bounds and still growing. This group became my main daily focus. Today I retired from the group. Leaving is bitter sweet. The page was my baby. And I enjoy helping others. Today I start a new path. Im writing a book, "Goat Health, A Guide for General Care, and Emergencies". It's not a normal goat book. There are plenty really good ones already written to help you with general information. This Book is a guide. Simple stream line help in times of need. If one has a goat ill, there is a check list to point you in the right direction..then a simple page to guide you in treatment. Im excited about this book. It has been in my brain along time. We goat farmers need this type of help. Even though Im saying good bye to my Face book group, Im opening up my life to completing this book and looking to start clinics locally. It's never easy saying good bye, but it is at times necessary!!
