We have perimeter fence around the pasture now behind the barn. Almost 660 ft of it slithered hither and yon through the brush and timber.
Goats will think they've hit green paydirt tomorrow morning. We'll start taking down the existing pasture pens at the barn now, and setting up a divided area within the full pasture for Malachi tomorrow. Plus the run for the chickens will be inside the goat's pasture as well. That ought to keep the coons and hopefully owls at bay.
By tomorrow afternoon Malachi and Buddy will have lots of space to preen for the ladies. Cotton and the girls will have more than enogh area. As winter moves in and the bugs and ticks and snakes aren't an issue we'll go back through for some wood posts, and set up another divided area in there to allow one to grow up some come spring. Not ideal space for true rotation, but it will do just fine.
As time permits...well, as money permits...we will work on full property perimeter fencing. We are well inside the property on every side. It would take another dozen rolls of fence to do along the back and partially up sides to front.
I'm so glad to see this done finally. I'll try to get on the computer and upload pictures this week sometime. Time to just spend time with Dewey. The MRI equipment comes in Monday and he has to be back by then. Then it's finished and he's home for good. Keep a prayer that he has work after this. If not, we'll put the pantry to test :o)
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
