Then I noticed that the goats were sneaking their heads through the hog panel underneath a rabbit hutch and eating the stored bales of hay there. No wonder they are fat! So while I was moving the hutch and getting tools, I noticed Candy was teasing our buck Cody. Poor guy, but he’ll get to entertain female goats soon enough.
So I put up another piece of hog panel over the old one with plastic ties (love those ties!). Now the openings are smaller and so far the goat heads can’t make it through. So I am smarter than a goat still.
Then I tied the hay elevator onto the roof rafters. If the goats do access the hay bales again there is a danger they could fall and the elevator with them. So I use baling twine to tie it up so if the bales fall or are used for feed, the elevator stays put.
While I am doing this, the dogs are sunning themselves- pretty lazy dogs…
