    LOL yes you definitely don't have space for any LGD's. As far as the deer repellent- :idunno Never used it.

    This may sound, ahem, weird, but have your husband pee along the fence line... unless the fence line is next to a road as we don't want your dear man getting arrested. Human pee will discourage deer.

    Max seems to be doing an admirable job... He's laying facing them so he should know immediately if they are in imminent danger of becoming uncomfortable laying in the recliner or on that wicked hard floor. I'm sure he looks forward to protecting them from lint or splinters :gigas long as it doesn't disturb his nap ;)

    Maybe DH can hide in the goat house and pee on the deer! That ought to make them think twice huh? ;):hide

    DH is on pee duty lol I had to stop letting them lounge inside. It became quite a demand from lamb chop, she far prefers the lounge chair to any old goat house!

    Well our goats don't seem to notice.
