Eating us out of house and home


We had some bales of hay left over from last year. They weren't in the best of shape. Partly wet and rotting at the edges, We decided to use them to build a temporary shelter in the middle paddock where we have our nanny goats and Hebridean sheep. Building it took only a few minutes. The roof was a metal panel from a dismantled shed, weighed down by a pallet. 

The sheep and goats started eating it immediately! They picked out the good hay and left the poor quality stuff. The shelter lasted all of an afternoon.
