I finally make myself go out to work again on my rush building job- a new shed for Dottie's kidding. But before I worked on enclosing the front, I did take a picture. It is so muddy here that I kept losing my boots- sucked right off.


Not up to some of the standards I've seen here but I was trying to spend as little as possible on it- All I've had to buy is the wiggle board and the 2x4's.

made me laugh for sure- thanks. Sort of a reverse mirage-
Actually, since I live on a first hill from the ocean, it is seriously wet for about 5-6 months each year. The wind off the ocean loses some of it moisture right here- either rain, fog or snow. I use rubber stall mats going from the goat shed to their gate and then gravel and another trail of mats going from the house to the hay shed. The horses are confined to a paddock with inches and inches of chipped redwood covering the ground in order to keep above the mud level.
I'll put landscape cloth down in the shed and put 8-10 inches shredded redwood on that and cover that with mats. Can't do more til summer when it dries enough to get a vehicle in to put in gravel. Thsi is the season the goat girls mostly hang out on the mats.

Great job. What are you going to do to keep them from getting wet in the mud? What I do when it happens here. I have pallets down and I have plywood on top of that, then the straw on the plywood. I want to make sure they do not break a ankle on the pallets.
