Title: Hello from South Derbyshire
Post by: Peter Cook on May 18, 2019, 05:05:14 pm
Hello guys, I'm Peter

I'm so very pleased to have been advised about this site. I think it will be a life saver for both me and my animals! which are:  :goat: anglo nubian only had for a week,  :chook: very rare white dorkings I've had for about 18 months, I'm also getting some rear breed turkeys, harvey speckled and pieds. I also have 2  :horse: which I used to drive, but sadly the roads are far too fast and busy around here so very sadly and after being field ornaments for 18 months will be sold this summer.

I live in South Derbyshre and rent some land and out buildings on a large livery yard. I'm a trained dog behaviourist, but also dog walk for other people locally.

I grew up on a small holding in Cornwall, before moving to London to advance my career in Social Work. I gave this up about 10 years ago and moved to the Midlands and bought two horses and started driving.

I would like to start a cottage industry making goat soap to run along side my other business. So, I'm looking for some Anglo Nubian nannies, if anyone fairly locally have any for sale.

Hi and welcome to TAS  :wave:
Might be worth putting your goat search in the marketplace with an appropraite title! Good luck with your future plans.

Hi and welcome from Shropshire. It might be worth asking in the goat section as well. There are other people making goats' milk soap in Shropshire but they have British Alpines.
