Hubby has been home and we have been busy. We cut more firewood, made a climbing tower for the goats, put up a electric fence so the goats would have lots more room to roam, raked the goat pen and did the normal everyday chores. Also had to get laundry done so William would have clean clothes as he heads for Oregon. Seems when he is home we are so rushed to get lots of things done we are so tired and sore we can't even rest good. We put the goats inside the electric fenced pasture. Diva stayed about 2 minutes then got zapped hard by the fence before going under it. Nitro wouldn't go near it as he knew what would happen. Sammi stayed in for about 30 minutes before getting zapped as she went under. William fixed the spot where they were going under and they spent the day grazing and relaxing. The boys touched their noses to the fence and now they won't leave the pasture. I unhooked the fence to let the goats go back into their pen and all went in but the boys. They would walk up to where I had unhooked it but wouldn't come on out. I walked in and showed them and even tried to walk them out but they wouldn't budge! So guess they will spend the night in the pasture. They have food and water so will be fine. Diva and Sammi need a break from them anyway and I could use the extra milk to catch up on soap and cheese orders. Been working on soap orders for 3 days and still not caught up. I am also making goat lotions and goats milk candles for my etsy shop. Getting that done and trying to get everything done around here has me behind in blogging. I will be back with animal photos and stories tomorrow... I promise. Have a great night and count those blessings!!!
