    Hey Yall,
    I contacted, via email, for some information on hoof care he gave me his advice. He said he checks them every 4-6 weeks and he said that here are two sites that maybe able to help. So here they are:
    ~http://www.boergoatshome.com/hooves.php and
    ~http://www.ehow.com/how_5668_trim-goat-hooves.html
    They also have links that maybe able to help with other questions. Such as how to properly feed your goat, kidding calculations, goat anatomny etc. So please also check these sites out for refrences. I do not want anyone to stop coming here but they are just another source of information.
    Hope this helps some of you,
    Lyn :rolleyes:

    It has long been a tradition to post links to other sources of info on the homesteading today site, so you did good!

    Please take note that a carpenters plane IS NOT the correct name for the tool, a plane will cut large chunks if not adjusted correctly, a woodworking plane does not look like a cheese grater it has a razor like blade that is adjusted for depth and when used on wood it produces curls of wood, not shreds. So when you go to look at one or to buy one, make sure it is like a cheese grater.
