Goat house and pasture
Sometimes there are little projects that nag at you. We have had a horse fence that needed mending for almost 2 months and we have some chickens who have taken up rooming in the goat house and needed a place of their own if they are to stay there for the winter.
Both of the projects were completed this weekend along with getting the snowmobiles out and tuned up, cheer practice, and 3 hockey games. Add to that 2 trips to the mall to buy jeans and then exchange jeans, regular farm work with the animals, and some great burgers for dinner. All in all a productive weekend!!
Here is a recap of our work. I have a few little things to do like decorate!!! But other than that, it’s now perfect for all animals to reside in for the winter.
Farm helpers Chance and his buddy Graer with the man fixing the horse pasture
Gutting the goat house to redesign
The goats were anxiously awaiting to see what was taking place in their home
A new wall was designed to let chickens pass but not goats
A cool old piece of cupboard that was a garbage pick was designed for a door into the chicken area
The chickens were getting worried so decided to huddle under cover waiting to see their home while others decided to keep scratching for some lunch
And inside the roosting area, feeding, area and natural nesting boxes were being put in place. We will look for decorations as the days go on and find some fitting pieces to decorate their area. So far they love their new home.
Next up was cleaning out the snowmobile trailer and priming the sleds for the upcoming season followed with 2 wins of hockey games!!
And now while everyone is asleep, I am having a night cap to end a great weekend
