Milking stand finished
This is the milking stand for the goats. David completed it today. And it's just in the nick of time. Tomorrow at 7am we head off to Rising Sun Farm in North Tyneside to pick up our first milking goat. We will bring her straight to our goat paddock where we will introduce her to our two existing (non-milking goats). It will be interesting to see their response.
In preparation for her arrival we have put the large plastic tool box back into the goat paddock. We used it as the first goat house last year before we put in a shed for the goats. Since then the toolbox has been used as a store for animal feed. However, the arrival of the new goat tomorrow could cause tensions so we decided that an additional shelter in the goat paddock would be useful. As you can see, our two existing goats have given it a thorough check.
