I never really thought I would own and show goats like I do now.
A lot of individuals that have goats and show them start when they’re young or even in their early teen years.
Me? I didn’t begin until my Junior year of highschool and I’ve loved it ever since. My best friend, Mysti-Ane’, was the one who got me into it.
Most people who get into showing animals do it because their parents did it or they already live on a farm with livestock. That wasn’t the case for me. My parents, when I told them I wanted to show goats, were a bit shocked, but now they love it too.
Our pets provide us with so much enjoyment. No matter how good or bad your day has gone, when you come home your dogs and cats are very happy to see you. Their moods never change…always very positive.

Most private pond and lake owners’ experiences probably fall somewhere in between. There can be problems associated with every aspect of a pond, even deciding what to call it…is it a “pond” or a “lake”?
Let’s clarify this first. There is no absolute definition between the two. The one used most often is the “5-acre rule”: Ponds are less than 5 acres while lakes are more than 5 acres. Since most ponds across the country are less than an acre, we will use the term “pond” for the sake of this blog post.
