What'ya bet they get a participation medal?

Well it's, alright now,

I learned my lesson well. See ya,

can't please everyone, so ya,

gotta please yourself.

 

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren Bennis~

Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Goats fencing-that's cute! Do they use their horns instead of swords?

I finally mostly finished the 6' privacy fence to protect my garden, so I was able to turn both the goats loose in a much bigger area. The one that hadn't been hopping the fence (Angelo) immediately got the goat equvalent of cat zoomies! It was hilarious.

I used 5' lengths of PVC pipe and threaded them into the existing chainlink so it extended the height of the fence about 3', draped them with bird/deer netting, then zip tied everything in place. Hopefully this will keep Loki from hopping over it at will, otherwise he'll be at my raspberry bushes again (apparently they taste delicious). I'll use a hot wire if I have to, but this will be a pretty cheap fix if it works. Now that they have room to run, browse on bushes poking through the fence, and other entertainments maybe they will be a little more content where they are. Although Loki mostly just wanted to be with people...the raspberry leaves were a bonus!

Crossing my fingers...

Goats love raspberry brambles. That's a great way to extend your fencing. You goat sounded so happy. Hopefully by now they are settling down and getting used to you and your new home.
