|Getting the Goats out and about!|
So, we woke up this morning and it was 0 C - that's right: a warm and balmy right-at-freezing zero at 7:30 AM! That's about twelve degrees warmer than our usual daytime high this time of year! Farmer Man had no appointments until the evening so we took the opportunity to get some chores down. First on our list, and our minds, is that Randi needs his own pen. As our Mamas get closer to delivering (expected March/Aprilish) Randi the Buck could inadvertently hurt them or the babies. Last year we had the spare pen, but this year the boys Marty and Mervyn are occupying it. Randi does not take kindly to the young bucks, so a new pen had to be constructed. The biggest part of that chore, as always, is cleaning out debris! The barn becomes a bit of a dumping ground in the fall, as we close down the vegetable operation. We needed to re-organize the shelves behind the pens, clear out some space and put together a new pen.
