A day out for the goats
Today was even better on the weather front than yesterday and so we decided to let the goats have access to the 4-acre field in the sure and certain knowledge, they would head into the hedge!!!
True to expectations, that is exactly what they did and a happy few hours were thus spent trimming back ivy and brambles as well as nibbling at a few branches.
They put themselves back in the barn late afternoon and were obviously quite full as the usual evening mugging for food was very muted indeed!!
We cannot let them do this too often as we don’t want them to nibble too much of the bushes and trees otherwise they will actually eat potential food for the spring and summer when of course, having grown, they will have double for their money!!!
For today though it was fine – and tomorrow is of course rain!!!
