It’s ready…

At least I think it’s ready, the barn, that is.  After much hauling of heavy objects, reconfiguring of needed heavy objects, rifling of all the hidden places on our property for supplies, the barn is clean, stall prepared, and gate is built.  I even cleaned out the hay loft, in preparation for hay delivery, which should be later this week.  I took a big load to the dump this morning, and was happy that I used my nervous energy last night to pack it up in the car, since it snowed last night!

The scrap will be coming shortly to pick up all the metal and things will be looking pretty good around Gilead Goat Farm.

There was a bit of a transportation scare yesterday, but, alternatives were found (thanks Adrienne and Susie and Jeff) and the goats are still on schedule to come home on Monday the 19th.   I’m really looking forward going to Rhinebeck too, to meet Susan Gibbs, shepherdess extraordinaire, the goat aunties, some ravelry friends, and most importantly my goats!   I’m getting 2 yearling does, and 3 buck kids.  I couldn’t be any happier or more excited. 

clean stall, troughs ready.

    It all looks great. I can already see the goats in the barn and you bundled up tight going out to coo over them. I look forward to your postings in the months ahead.

    Congratulations, I am so looking forward to following you blog so I can see the little guys grow. Watched them on the lambcam and can’t wait to see how they grow. Good Luck.

    You’ve accomplished so much! I can’t wait until they arrive and settle in, but not nearly as much as you I’m sure!
