::new goat area::

My Josh built me a new goat pasture.

He wasn't even that unhappy about it.

As a matter of fact, I think if you got one too many margarita's in him, he'd tell you he is starting to see the humor in my little friends.

This dramatically increases the amount of space that we have.  Which is good because we went from 4 to 10 goats in the blink of an eye this year.

Now we have two pens.

Pen 1 is our original pen.  I 6ft by 12 foot former dog kennel with a small door to an outside run that measures 16 by 36.  This has seemed to been just right for 2-4 goats but any more gets too crowded.

Pen two has a 12 ft by 12 ft stall in the barn with a small door to the outside area. (actually opening to the outdoor pen is in progress) That outside area run behind both barns and out into a side yard that I can see from the kitchen window.  That area of the outside pasture space is at least seven times the old pen. 

I want to make a little play ground for the goaties.

Like these...
