NAPgA Online Fundraiser Auction is LIVE!!


Due to the overwhelming success of last year’s virtual auction, NAPgA has decided to go virtual again this year! Rather than hold a live auction at the Rendy, we believe we can include more participants by offering the fundraiser auction online, and if buyers and sellers wish they can use the Rendy as an exchange site for larger items. This will also make it easier to buy and sell goats since they could potentially be exchanged at the Rendy.

The auction runs from May 31st, 2021 at 6PM to June 9th, 2021 at 6PM MST.

NEW! NAPgA Registry and Hiking Log is LIVE!

NAPgA is rolling out a new goat registration and hike tracking system for members!  Here’s how to join us on the trail:

1. Go to “Your Goats” on the NAPgA website.  You will have to sign in to access the goats page.
2. Add your goats.  Each goat must be permanently identified by tattoo, microchip, or ear tag: This is necessary for tracking your goats throughout their lifetime.
3. Go to “Your Hikes” on the website, and add in your latest hike.  Goats can be entered by typing in their nicknames.

4. See what other members are doing!  The “Member Hikes” shows all the recently added hikes, and the “Top Goats” shows a list of the greatest hikers.
Take a few minutes to login and add your goats and your hikes this year to start tracking your miles!  Maybe your boys will be in the 1000-mile club by years-end!
If you have any trouble adding goats or hikes, please Contact Us!  We’ll be happy to help out!

Get out the VOTE!

The polls are OPEN! 

Once again, we have some INCREDIBLE photos submitted to this year’s calendar contest, and it’s time to vote for our favorites! The polls will be open until October 18th.

Photos can be viewed here:

Since we need 12 photos for our calendar, you can vote for up to 12 different pictures! Please spread out your votes! Pick no more than two photos from any one album.

If you have a personal Yahoo account: Vote by clicking the STAR next to your favorite photos (Fave).

If you DO NOT have a personal Yahoo!/Flickr account: Vote using the comment boxes under the photos. In order to comment you will need to sign in to the NAPgA account. Private Contact Us if you need the login info.

If you use the comment boxes, please type your name by your vote. This way we have a record if you accidentally vote for the same photo twice or cast more than 12 votes (it’s very easy to lose track of which photos and how many you vote for if you don’t sign your name!).

Hats off to all who submitted photos and to all who vote and buy calendars each year! If you have trouble using Flickr please contact us and we will help you out.
