More About The Goats
A mother goat with her twins has been hanging out around my place. I put up a sign. I sent messages to the owner. She has fallen into my trash hole about 10 times now. I don't think she falls. She eats in there and then waits for people to come rescue her. It's a good deal for a hungry goat. A few times the kids have been in there with her.
I reinforced the fence of the west side of my yard. We bought 2x4's and split them to make posts. We cemented them into the ground and screwed sheets of tin onto them. It's an attractive barrier, if I may say so. But that leaves three more sides to the yard.
The south side is now the week part. This week we'll have it strengthened by adding the wire fencing that the tin replaced. We've filled in holes on the east side already and one hole on the north side. I put an elastic thing on the gate so that it doesn't ever hang open.
SO, I've done about as much as a guy can do. The little goats have been inside the yard once or twice. They are so small they can pass through the tiniest of holes. And they are cute. I scoop them up and 'drop' them over the fence.
I found out goats don't eat marigolds. My two marigold plants are untouched...by goats. Kids have stripped them once or twice, but not the goat kids...the human ones.
Our plan is to plant a section of ground in front of the western fence. You can't have goats visiting young plants. We shall see who wins.
