I have to stand right with them because the woods are scary and goats are ridiculous. But once they figured out there are still some wild rose, blackberry, and other scratchy bramble available they really went to town. Then I could do some more clearing work while they roamed around.
Nibbles and Dahli
Of course the goats went directly to this little apple tree we rescued earlier in the spring. Shortly after this picture there was some "discipline" and Nibs and Dahli stopped eating the tree. Goats.
Trees every which way.
We ended up having more storm damage than we thought. This mishmash is actually a problem. Some of the big tree limbs knocked down our perimeter fence. I cleared a path to this rubble while the goats screwed around.
Darla is Debbie's Mini-Me.
Having fence down is pretty bad business.The other night Kai let me know there were coyotes close and then something big ran thru our woods, close enough to the house that I could hear it. So we need to get our first line of defense...which is the fence... up and running. We need chainsawing and soon.
Not goats but Zander and Kai looked so beautiful the other morning.
That's the update for now. We got some rain, mercifully, so today will be mostly inside. I kind of need to get caught up so I'm glad.
Happy Thursday everyone!
