Was cold, but we finally had a day that we could get out and work. No snow, no wind, had sunshine, and blue skies. Our new Nigerian Dairy Dwarf Bucks, Nougat and MilkDud, were in a temporary pen until we could work on some fencing. Now they're in their new digs, in the future they'll get some fun stuff to jump on. You'll see bamboo in the photo's, we love bamboo fo several reasons, talking about poultry and the goats - makes a great mulch, good to munch on, stays green all year, bends with ice doesn't break, shelter, protection, shade, some leaves fall and good to scratch in. Yeah, you want to control it but that's not nearly a big deal as people make it out to be, root system runs on top of ground. Next year, we're gonna sell it at the Farmers Market.

Funny - [This is pre-goats and without Mike's knowledge.] Our local radio station has a SWAP SHOP and I advertised that I was looking for Nigerian Dwarf goats. No more had they made the announcement, my cellphone rang to which I heard from Mike, "we're not getting any damn goats." Well, 5 days later I manipulated him once again, and we were on our way to NE Georgia to pick up our three does. :-) Now, he dearly loves the 3 does and we've since added 2 bucks.
