The building projects never end. After this one is done we still have to do another fenced goat yard, rebuild a chicken coop and run some more electric fence so we can rotate pastures. Our friends from Mountain Shadows Malamute Kennel hooked us up with some pre-made wall panels when they moved which gave us some great material to start with. And with a trip to home depot visiting their cull lumber section we ended up with 54 pieces of wood for just $25. This project is off to a great start, keeping the costs down. Again the most expensive part is the roofing material. We did have to buy some OSB sheets but most the wood we have laying in our scrap pile.
We have had these girls for about 2 weeks now. We bought them from Remmington Ranch. They almost look identical except for one having a beard. Millie is a 2 year old Lamancha and Tina is 4 years old. (We named her Tina after the Llama in Napolean Dynamite since she wouldn't eat her grain the first few days :p ) They are perfect goats and so well behaved. Milly is a little too timid though and the other girls know it and push her around a bit.
We are drying Tina off since she's not milking much at all. It's time to breed for all the girls now. The vet is Thursday to give them all a clean bill of health so we can take them to Dewmar acres to meet a boy for a day. It's going to be crazy winter and we have a lot to prepare for. We're looking to have 12 or more babies to deliver so more barn building continues.
