Exclamation Website critique!

Home - -Laural Lake Farm- Home to meat goats, trail horses, hunter ponies, and so much more...

The things I know I need to do:
Get better pictures of my doe, Dee.
Have better pictures for Phillip.
& I expect some grammar/spelling to be off.

Thanks in advance! I really need help.

REMINDER - Do not tell me I need to insure my farm, or have license to train/hold lessons. No, you do not need a license to teach children. I'm 15 doing $15 leadline lessons. It's not a huge deal if I'm a top-of-the-line trainer. I have liability waivers. Don't tell me they do nothing. I know there is a possibility of a child getting hurt around an equine, since they are unpredictable. I know this. Don't worry about it, I'm working on things.
If you DO have information on insuring farms in Virginia, please post a link to that information.

Thanks again.

your horse tornado needs A LOT more weight put on him. I know he is old but he looks like a bag of bones. Put more weight on him then post pics. It's not good advertising.

On this

If your Doe does not take to our buck/miscarries there will be a free breeding. Booking fee still required.

live kid garuntee. Sounds more profecianal.

on the sales page just get rid of the stuff about your stud sevice. This is a service not some thing you are "selling" persay.

on the pony parties you should probably put a weight limit of a child, unless you plan on brining a horse.

Thats all I can see. Looks really good other than that.

Tornado is a very hard keeper. He gets his senor, high protein grain daily. He gets over four cups. He has extreme teeth problems, and he was a cribber for years before purchasing him. He was well over 4oo pounds under weight. We've had the vet out to check him, and the vet said there's no reason for him not gaining. He also eats as much hay as he wants. We have no idea why he won't gain. We also worm every 6-8 weeks, alternating wormers.

Thank you, I'll fix the other things. [:

then it would probably be a good idea to mention that on the site.

Hi!
Just spent some time looking over your entire site.
Looks like you have a pretty darn good start there!

Seems like you have good information, it is laid out well, very user friendly. Easy to navigate around in.

Like you all ready mentioned, I did notice just a couple grammar/spelling errors, but not many. Just run through it again, and really read what is there, I think you will spot them easy enough.

The only recommendation I might make is to maybe "screen" the photos you decide to use a bit more.
The site looks nice and presents a friendly, professional image.
(really loved the pic of Savannah with her pumpkin orange saddle pad surrounded by bales and pumpkins, very cute.)
But then I am looking at some pics with ladders, and old rusted wheel barrows knocked over, etc. in the back ground.
Kind of takes away from it, do you know what I mean?

Otherwise I think it is looking very good!

I am not going to critique, but I have a question (probably dumb )... What those goats are used for? Milk? I remember thinking about getting one to milk and never get to pass a "thinking stage"...

Boer goats are meat goats.

Thank you! I know about the pictures. But that's what my facilities look like at this time (no grass/building/clearing, etc.) - should I have them photoshopped? I thought that would seem a bit cheesy.

Yes, thank you.

My Boer goats are specializing in bettering the breed. I haven't bought a market goat yet, just show-quality. After I finish my pony & he him advertised, I plan to start showing my buck & get my doe visually inspected.
