Then I felt sorry for all the does out back. So started taking them up front to the garden too. In 2's. It's pretty far to just let them go by themselves. Too many things to get into on the way there. There were so many things to eat, they were all over the place for awhile.
The goats went over to clean up the fence row.
And the sheep had to follow, of course. It was a very nice day. I worked up a sweat in no time out there.
While all the goats were up front, I decided to take the push mower to the goat yard and mow down all the dead stuff. It wore me out! This is where the goats live. This used to be a pine tree forest years ago. The people who owned this place had someone come in and cut them all down. And they just left all the trees to rot out there. And when we bought this place, it had all grown up with wild roses and blackberry bushes. And lots of little trees. It took the goats a few years, but this is all that's left now. Not much.
And this picture below is looking toward the NW. So they have lots of room back there. Just no bushes or trees, which they would so much rather have.
And here is the pasture, almost all mowed and looking better. I want to go get some winter rye and sow back here now, if it's not too late. I'll go to the co-op and see. Over to the left, by their barn, is alot of green grass still growing. And in the back yard too. And they have lots of hay mountains too.
And the goats are all back in their home again. They don't like too much change, these goats. And they like their barn. It's cold out there!
I am thinking about getting some pigs soon after the sheep finish what they can eat in the garden. Then I'll put pigs in there to till it all up for me.
