The goat pen

Goat pen Jul 13

50 fence posts were delivered to my house today. They are for the goat pen we are about to build. The photo above shows the land where the pen will go. As you can see it is rather overgrown and hasn't been used for many years. We are aiming to get two nanny goats but first the fencing and the shed need to be built and the site fully secured. The site is traingular shaped with two long sides and one shorter one.  There are well established hawthorn hedges along one long and the short side, making containment of the goats easier. Nevertheless this is going to be a huge job but I am hoping to have the site ready fro September when we will buy the goats. Then I have to learn to milk them!
