Dwayne, from Broken Arrow Farms, came and tilled our garden plot for us this evening. What a blessing to have someone with a tiller implement on his tractor do this for us. This saved us so much time, and back-breaking work! Now to get the vegetable and herb seeds/plants in the ground!
They are plotting their next escape, Lol!
When I took the greys out for a walk this morning, I smelled honeysuckle. Oooh, honeysuckle…goats love honeysuckle, I thought to myself. I snapped off some sprigs of it and brought it back to the pasture for them. They were some happy goaties (see them smiling)!
Thank you Lord for blessing us with Greytful Acres!
Soooo, it appears we have a little Houdini on our hands. Yesterday, Dave was inside the house and heard, what he thought was the sound of one of the goats, but knew they were out in the barn and wouldn’t be them. So he got up to check on the greyhounds to see if it was a sound they were making and it wasn’t. As he walked by the window, he saw Scarlet standing on the stone wall between our property and our next door neighbors pasture. He ran outside and she stood there nibbling at the leaves hanging from a tree. He scooped her up and brought her back to the barn. He stood there awhile and watched her to figure out how she got out. She jumped over the goat pen, which is just shy of 4 feet tall! Needless to say, we modified the pen by adding more lumber to the walls to prevent that from happening again! These are photos of Dave’s beautifully designed goat pen ‘Before’ and the modifications made to it ‘After’. Welcome to Fort Knox! Geeeesh….
Dave made this impromptu “pasture playground” for the goats today. They love it!
Happy Birthday to our boy, Lyle, who is 7 years old today! We “failed” at fostering this boy 3 years ago and couldn’t be happier that he chose us to be his forever home!
