Pat North was an experienced goat breeder when she wrote ‘All you ever wanted to know about goats’. Her wealth of experience is shown in this book but aimed at the novice goat keeper or someone who wants to know how to look after a goat as a pet.This is a book every goat-keeper should have in their library. This latest edited version has been completed by her son Charles Spring who knew she wanted to keep it up to date. He did this to reflect the changes in the goat-keeping world since publication of the previous edition in the 1980’s. He has managed to keep the original intent of this book whilst reflecting some of the changes in practice since its first publication.All of the original photographs and pictures so well drawn by people Pat North knew personally as friends are still in there. As are many of the humorous comments she added to try and make goat keeping fun as it should be, whilst still ensuring the best for the animals through her practical knowledge.

A2S Paracord Bracelet K2-Peak Series – Survival Gear Kit with Embedded Compass, Fire Starter, Emergency Knife & Whistle – Pack of 2 - Slim Buckle Design Hiking Gear (Black / Red 8.5")
THE ULTIMATE SURVIVAL TOOL Imagine the following scenario: You and your friends are on a camping trip and you decide to take your kayak out for a quick solo spin on the river before it gets dark. Dressed up in just shorts and with your backpack, at the campsite, you start your trip. A few miles down the river an unexpected current suddenly throws you out of your kayak and you smash your leg against a rock. Wet, hurt and left alone you realize that you are in trouble and the only thing that you have with you is what you have on you - your A2S Paracord bracelet. Night is approaching fast. You start feeling cold and notice you have problems with your hand coordination. You have to do something fast to get your body temperature up. You manage to gather some kindling and wood. With a sigh of relief, you unravel your A2S paracord and use some of its fine inner strands as tinder. By scraping the striker in your bracelet against the rod you manage to generate sparks and ignite the tinder. Minutes later you are sitting in front of a comfortable fire. Things are looking up! Now feeling warmer you decide to use the scraper as an Emergency Knife and cut off a piece of your paracord to string up a clothes line and dry your wet garments. Back in dry clothing again you know you have to do something about that injured leg. You find a suitable branch, splint your leg against it and secure it with your paracord. You realize that your friends at the campsite are probably looking for you and blow your EMERGENCY WHISTLE to reveal your exact location. Should they not find you, you decide to navigate your way back to the campsite in the morning using the built-in COMPASS. Luckily you gave your friend the other A2S Survival bracelet in the 2-pack set and within a few short hours, you hear the reassuring sound of your friend's whistle.
