    Got four tractor buckets full of fresh white sand in the goat house, spread out and tamped down, went and brought the three little bucks (kids) from next door and put them in chicken fenced in area, selling one , bought one, and babysitting other, lol.
    Little miss Stormy is living up to her name, she got under feed house for about 45 minutes....it is now fixed so that won't happen again. Looked at her momma's udder and relieved her of 10 oz of milk to even her out and put that in freezer for future goat use.
    Let the jersey giants loose with the other chickens, at leat with the three bucklings in that area i won't worry so much about the racoons. We still need to finish the electric fence.....
    Once the old goat and chicken area is all grown in , (late summer) them our new buck and the jersey giants will have a new home. My plan lol, is to breed the jersey giants and eventually just have that one breed of chicken.
    Time for a shower and something for my back, i have already done a days work, it is pretty darn hot and need some down time...be back later, have a great day :frow

    Well, when those "names" get to stirring around....here, shortly...nearby "refuge" can come in real handy....depending on the track any may take....but, it is good to be able to spend a little time with more "likeminded" people....and also enjoy the "atmosphere"....never a dull moment....;)....bet we could play some card games thru a storm or 2 and hardly hear it go by.....:lol:

    Just caught up -- again! I don't know if it is the senility or the Aggie part, or both, but I don't remember Robin and Toli.

    Got all the goats from neighbor, decided on the six that I am keeping and selling the rest. Got the ones that are being sold listed and just have to wait till the others kid and then they will be sold. As much as I would love to keep more, I am going to stay with the registered girls and keep them in milk......got to make some soap for ourselfs :)
    Would love to rant about the heat here, but it is supposed to go into the triple numbers shortly so I had best be happy right now.
    Hope everyone that's in the south and hot has AC, ..... going to be one hot summer here in the swamp.
    Have a good evening everyone :frow
