the goat yard

Last week, during a break in the nearly constant drizzly rain, we spent some time hanging out in the goat yard.  I love the goat yard and barn that Glenn, Erika and Christian built.  (I had a hand in the work, too, but my contribution was mostly keeping Finley out of trouble.) When the goats were housed in the chicken-run-turned-goat-yard, there wasn't much room, but now!  Now we have a large, covered barn as well as a large fenced area and not only is it better for the goats,  it's great fun for us to spend time in there with them.  There are climbing areas, shade and sun, mud puddles and the soft cushion of straw in the barn.  And, one of the best things in my book, is that the chickens can join us in the yard, but the pushy, loud geese are too fat to squeeze under the gate!  I think we're going to be spending a lot of time in the goat yard.

  1. Wonderful country life. We lived in a farm till our children were 11 and 7 years of age. My son now in his adult live (27) wish that we had never left. It is great to see the goats and the chicken, they look so cute! Wishing you a marvelous year in 2016!
