The Ubiquitous Blue Tarp
Happily, the raggedy goat shelter will soon be no more. We have a man coming soon, to fence that hillside to the right of the house. All the goats with the exception of the buck will be going up there. And I have a shelter already half built for them. They should eat down all the scrubby little pine trees and brambles and open up that pasture again. It's amazing how fast the woods have encroached on us. After they get rid of the brush, we plan to get a few sheep to keep the grass down. Not many, four would be enough. A young neighbor guy is a sheep shearer. He shears, trims hooves and gives shots all in the same visit for a very reasonable price, It'll be nice not to have to worry with all that back-braking stuff. Keeping up with the goats feet is a chore in itself these days.
