Fixing Fionn’s Summer Fun

29 Nov

We’re still pretty cold here, but I don’t think it’s going to get any warmer.  I’ve got to get ready for winter for the goats.

Since it wasn’t too bad today, and my nephew Chris is home for Thanksgiving, we decided to work on fixing Fionn’s summer fun.

See, he’s a lot like his grandpa Goliath.  He likes to beat on walls and bust them out.

I had already put a piece of plywood over part of it last year, but that wasn’t a solid enough fix.

My dad and nephew and I worked hard today, and we got plywood put up to at least block the wind out.  Hopefully, it’s a much better job than I did last time.

Hopefully, the way we did it, Fionn won’t just bust them out again.

I’m sure they’ll appreciate actually having walls when the winter weather truly arrives.

      I’m guessing they will appreciate the warmth come January or February. 🙂

    What a sweet post. I enjoyed reading the goats adventure. I love Fionn’s beard. What a cutie! I don’t live near a farm so it’s nice to see these shots.

      Thanks. Fionn truly is a sweet boy. He just has that one bad habit. 🙂

    Hard work- hope those boys don’t plow through it the first time they try! They will appreciate that warmth, for sure!

      The plywood is much stronger than the thin boards that he broke through, so I think this will work.

    They are some lucky goats!

      I’d like to think so. I’m pretty lucky to have such nice guys too.

    I like Fionn’s curly locks and flowing beard.

    • Teresa November 29, 2013 at 7:28 pm #

      I do too. It runs in the family, but Marley lost his curls after his “brain surgery.”

    Fionn is sure trying to look innocent! Hopefully he behaves himself. I see the snowflakes are back on your blog! 🙂

    • Teresa November 30, 2013 at 6:11 pm #

      I just noticed the snowflakes now. Yippee! He really is a good boy other than beating walls down. 🙂
