Together Again

13 Jul

For some reason, all three days of working on the chicken-of-the-woods also saw goats getting out.  Luckily, when they get out it is basically just coming up the road to wait for me to let them in.  Still, I prefer they are not eating in the ditches and on the road.  I tried hobbling it the first day.  The second day was late in the evening, and I figured I would deal with it the next day, but chicken-of-the-woods claimed my attention again.  Well, on day three it was probably three-fourths of the herd.  Since I was talking about putting them together again, I decided this was the time to do it.

I’m sure the pasture does taste old and dry, but we did at least get some rain over the weekend.

Anyhow, they all got to spend the rest of the day on the front pasture.  That way I didn’t have to worry about them getting out again.

I went down in the evening and put another piece of panel across where they ripped up the old snow fence barrier.

Of course, having everyone on the front pasture means nobody is weaned anymore.

That means no milk until they get weaned again.
