    ...A freak storm came through, it lasted for about 10 minutes but it was intense, tornado type weather to the point where the goats run almost blew over (It has a tarp on top, and tarps on two sides so you can imagine.. it's like a sail ship). It started raining really hard and thundering out and I was worried (and so were the goats!). Hermione was cowering at the back of the run and Cissy looked worried too so I grabbed Hermione and mum put Cissy on a leadrope and I brought them into the chicken coop. We have a feed storage section of our chicken house at the front that is seperated from the rest of the house by a chicken wire wall. The girls are in there with their hay, feed, minerals, and water and will be there for the night. They're rather angry with me though LOL because I recently dusted the area with Dri-Kill & DE so they certainly will not have mites! Ha ha ha..

    lulz, you should have seen the chickens and goats looking at each other. It was hysterical. The chickens were all at one end, the goats at the other just... staring ha ha ha.

    Of course, the goats found enough time between staring at the chickens and snorting at them to eat their grain [​IMG]
