    I watched my neighbor de-budding a goat. They were just starting to grow, I remember them stinking as they were ground down and putting some sort of anti fungal on the nubs when done.

    We used hot wire and fencing panels. I hate nubian goats, the best are lamachas (sp?), and I like alpine too.

    Ours had three trapdoors, one under the front staircase into a crawl space. House legend tells that it was used in the Underground Railroad. I don't see any practical use for a trapdoor over a cellar that had no utilities when built?

    The second trapdoor was under the rear staircase and led to the cellar. I wish that one was still there, but it was closed off when the original oil furnace was installed to provide a path for ductwork to the back wing. Now we have to go outside to go to the cellar! Since the trapdoor ran at right angles to the floor joists, the framing is rather...interesting...in that area.

    The third trapdoor was in the kitchen and went into the root cellar, which was at the front of the cellar. Since it was right in the walkway, the location was terrible (yes, let's open a gaping hole in the kitchen floor, right in the main walkway) I don't regret covering this one. But the framing alterations made to accomodate it were baffling to say the least!

    I'd love to be in a house like that, I'd run around like a kid! Over here most houses were put in during the great war and ww2, so small service houses. Other older houses are about as utilitarian as they were row houses for loggers.

    Who ever built my house made everything the wrong size......I have to make my own doors.....and the ceiling fan is a real killer for tall people.
