The rains have come. We have a bit of a tropical storm heading our way, preceded by rains from an independent system. The prognostication of significant amounts of water accelerated a few things around the house. Namely: bringing in a temporary roofing fix for the goats.
I quickly finished off the roof on the latest house (for the milking does pen) last night. Let me tell you, it’s no fun going into a pen of curious goats with a 5 gallon bucket of tools and supplies. The best analogy I can come up with is working while watching a toddler. Toddlers, as many know, are highly curious, and at times, investigate the world via the mouth. That’s just was the goats were doing. Nibbling on handles, chewing on empty plastic bags (fence clips) or chewing a label off of some bolt cutters. Nothing ingested, but plenty of nibbling.
Lunch today consisted of a quick sandwich at the house, followed by pulling a 16’X30′ tarp over two of the houses in a light rain. Follow that up with trying to secure one. I can testify to the fact that two sets of hands are easier getting something that large in place than one. And it would be far easier when try as well. Follow that up with a quick AP of Burundi Kayanza Bwayi and back off to work.
But, we have covered houses now up for the goats. They will have a larger dry place to lay and dry location for feed. I hope they enjoy.
Solo Deo Gloria,
