Yesterday we all loaded up the pickup and headed south to hang out with the Key Peninsula Dairy Goat society for their first annual Field Day. We lost our team as they found the Nigerian Dwarf kids, Filbert the back pack goat and got to visit with the numerous and very colourful members of the group…two legged and four. I think that the afternoon sealed the deal and somewhere in the Benton/Eshelman menagerie there may very well be the odd personable little peanut/strawberry/liquorice chomping goat. Once we returned to the ranch, all goated out, …It was back to work and commencement on phase 4 and the final phase of that stretch of fencing. Forever to be known as the Lesley Derek corner. There are only a few hundred more feet to fence, by the time we are done guys you will be experts..and we will have great fences!!! Thank you. Quatre returned to seattle for the weekend and her city fix, to return again this evening.
This afternoon we are taking some time off the farm, ( again) to go to a birthday party and a little time down for our enthusiastic team.
Greg is loading some pictures, I have to explain. I was not in the cage for time out for bad behaviour, I was( possibly not too wisely!) attempting to persuade a rampant rooster to move into the catch box. I think the glint in Greg’s eye matched the glint of the roosters eye and indicated a possibility of maybe keeping me under some element of control…but it’s NOT going to happen again.I think I still smell like rampant rooster! Smile
Well, it’s time to go, take care, keep safe, M
