This morning we had sand delivered for the arena. We got a total of 6 trailer fulls. Four yesterday, two today.
Brett had his work cut out for him. First he spent a couple hours spreading the sand evenly in the arena. Then he went back to painting the shed.
The three Nigerian Dwarf goats will arrive on June 12th -- they won't be old enough to leave mama until then. The two African Pygmy goats were just born this past week. We get to go visit them Sunday. It will be six to eight weeks before we bring them home. The Nigerian Dwarf breeder encourages bottle feeding as she feels it builds the bond between owner and goat. We will bottle feed them when they come home. The African Pygmy breeder is a firm believer in mama goat milk only, no bottle feeding. So we will have to wait until they are weaned to bring them home. I understand both positions.
I was going to blog about why we have dry lots for our horses instead of grass pasture (a question I received) but I had too much wine with dinner and am having trouble typing... much less thinking. So, I will post about that tomorrow. I had my annual mammogram this afternoon so the wine was medicinal. I mean, after going through that (why WHY does it have to hurt so much), wine is a necessity.
