Upcoming meeting

We have requested a meeting with councilman Steve Kay on Wednesday of next week. This meeting will be to discuss the proposed amendment to the city code. Ms. Leah Boggs, aide to Councilman Kay, gave us a copy of the proposal which would change the title of ordinance 4-11 from "Hogs, keeping of" to "Livestock, keeping of." The propsed change would make allowances to allow potbellied pigs, miniature goats, and miniature horses. We will be posting more information as we become aware of it.
Thank you for your support!

Which breed?

We found this great website that is a project of the Oklahoma State university. It is an exhaustive list of the many different breeds of goats and it provides a bit of information on each one. We hope that our members will find it useful. http://www.ansi.okstate.edu/breeds/goats/

Well, we just got off the phone with Channel 36, and per their request sent them some information. We have also just contacted the Herald Leader, Channel 18, Channel 27, and La Voz. We will be contacting El Mundo later on today as well. Next on the list is to contact all of our city council members. :-)
Thank you all for your support.
