    That not-so-little polled doeling, Scully, is now a third freshener, a proud and attentive momma with a big heart for her owners. The first photos I'm posting now are telling the early stages of my goat journey. More to come.

    On our little farm, we have three goat sheds and a chicken coop that doubles as a kidding stall when it's not used for the young cockerels. The sheds are painted different colors so we can know which one is which. All of them also function as part of the fence, so we are careful not to make them climbable. The central shed acts as a sorting space because it has doors which open on three sides to three different paddocks. It helps us when need to feed separately, catch certain ones, and when we milk and have each doe take a turn. P5260307.jpg IMG_4155.JPG PA150646.JPG P3081061.JPG

    Thanks, OFA! Of course it always looks better when it's new. We've enjoyed the present conformation and want to add more pasture at the least.

    We have repurposed various things for our goats- a dish drying rack holds hay, a coffee table is a sleeping platform, an office desk on its side becomes snug cubbies for kids, a gazebo for shade... We like to look at the free pile at Habitat ReStore.

    DSCN2568.jpeg P3300416.jpeg The pictures loaded when I made them smaller. The shade gazebo has to have the top taken off in the winter in case of snow. You can see the desk is on its open back side with a partition in the middle to make two cozy compartments.
