Hey people, we are moved, we're living out of boxes, and we're figuring out new bills lol.
The little farm we bought looks like they used to raise game birds. We have usable old structures and will need some new.
Going for fencing on Saturday. I'll try to update every step of my side of the property.
The goats are happy and healthy here.
For those who knew her, we did lose Guinen. She suffered several stokes right before we moved. Every time she was getting better, she would stroke again. She was pretty elderly, I just wish she had let go sooner.

I look forward to hearing about your new farm moving forward.

Sorry for your loss of Guinen.
It sounds like your new place is pretty neat! Does your grandson like it? I hope he does well in the new school. (My 12 yr. old grandson liked his new school because the teacher and all the kids gave special attention to the "new" kid!)

The new place is great, the people in town are friendly and helpful. There's more churches than bars lol.
There's a huge amount of recreation here.
The grandcritter is actually enjoying his school although he was in a bit of temper on Friday because he learned his new teacher already has a boyfriend (he's eight lol)

I have 900 feet of fencing in my truck. Now I just need 10 strong boys, yeah, it's all me lol.

Well, sorry about the delay. I'm not used to counting my data usage or having a child anymore.
In planning my fencing I found a tree that's giving me stress. I'll start a new thread for it tomorrow. I think it's a Magnolia but would love positive id.
If all else fails I'll take a branch to OSU.

I'm so glad your enjoying your new home and community!
We're just kind of stuck here right now - hubby wants to move and doesn't want to put any more work into this place other than finishing the buck pen shelter (need pallet boards to fill in the gaps then get it painted). He wants to move, but darn it, still no luck finding a place :( Clock is ticking though, we have more does than we've ever planned to keep of breeding age, and wanting to add a new doe kid which means... no move = have to sell someone :(

If it is magnolia, goats love the big leaves and flower petals. They get to eat the leaves twice a year. The biggest problem is the seed pods, or cones. The pods are small enough to hide in the grass and large enough to make you twist your ankle when you step on one.
Are the leaves large and hard? Shiny green on top with a dark khaki matte finish on bottom. Seed pods when mature about three inches long and an inch to inch-and-a-half in diameter with red seeds in the cones. Tree has smooth bark, medium dark gray, sort of reminds you of elephant skin.
