    He's one of Zamia x Valiant's triplets. She had two bucklings and a doeling; he is the smaller buckling.

    I found another repurpose handy around the farm- Instead of throwing them away right off, old shower curtains that don't look spiffy can be a temporary tarp under bedding in the kidding stall. Clean up is just a matter of rolling it up and emptying on the compost. You might be able to hose it off for another time of use...

    We have done this many times! LOL We pretty much repurpose everything. Although every once in a while I look around and go... ok-enough we look way too much like Sanford & Son. :lol:
    I love repurposing things I also like it neat... you have neat... sadly right now I do not.

    With everyone gone to the shows and I am on kid watch I am cleaning this place up. Sometimes easier when I can be by myself.
