Bonita is Back!

Back from her mate-cation, she is back with her daughter and her return inspired some goat-pen improvements. I reinforced the main gate and removed all the clumsy baling twine. This morning it was so nice seeing mother and daughter chew on their Second Cut while I carried feed off to the pigs. And having a goat that is pregnant in your backyard is like money in the bank. It means kids (which I can sell or barter), milk (soap, cheese, and MILK!), and saved money on groceries. While goats are a troublesome bother when it comes to fences - they sure are worth it. I can't imagine not having a few goats in the backyard. They make life better, richer, and a lot more interesting!
