Goat barn at DrinkingStraws.Glass

The Goat Barn is done!! 
 

Goat barn is done and the goats in are in and they are loving it.  There is so much room for them to run around it is just awesome.  We still have some little adjustments that need to be made but we didn’t know until we had the goats in there to see just what they do.
It feels really good to finally have that project done and the goats in a good home.  Three of the girls are pregnant and so we need to make sure we have Birthing areas for them.  It is a Goat Palace!

Update on the New Goats!

Update on the new goats.

The three girl Goats are settling in just fine here at DrinkingStraws.Glass.  The first couple of days we made sure to keep them inside the pen so they wouldn’t wonder off.  A new place is always scary and we live in the woods and so they could easily get lost.  I’m a worrier. Lol.

The other day we left them run free for a few and they did great!  They didn’t wonder off and just were stoked to run free.  When it was time for them to come inside they came in without a fight.

Another positive note is that they aren’t as scared of us anymore!!  Now when we come to say “Hello” they greet us. (they also think we have a yummy treat for them, lol)

We did have a scare the other day though.  They found the Rhododendron bush and decided to munch on it.  Well, that will kill them if not treated in time.  We were up until at least 1:30 am making sure Godiva was feeling better.  All 5 goats ate some but only a few were sick, Godiva was the worst.

I, Kattie, decided to cut down all them bushes!  Our goats will no longer be tempted to eat them! So now if we are up till 1 am it will be for another reason.  :p

Love the farm life!!!
