Ken's been home now for almost 3 weeks. On June 1st he'll be officially retired after 20 years in the US army! He'll be looking for other employment soon but for now he's enjoying some much needed - and deserved- time off.
We spent this afternoon worming the goats and trimming hooves. I have trouble trimming their hooves alone as they really put up a fuss. So it takes the two of us. Here's Ken with our nubian doe Perdita. After having her hooves trimmed and a good brushing we took her for a walk and let her munch on some of the brambles and grasses on the bank beside the house.
It's so wonderful having Ken home. We've been married for 13 years and when we added up all his deployments he's pretty much been gone for 7 years!
