RMan outdid himself. Not only did he create two wonderful paddocks - basically out of unwanted scraps of wood, but he also conceived, and constructed the following three very necessary items...
|The first gate in the making|
... three excellent gates...
|A feeding trough - or shoud that be called a manger?|
A feeding trough... or should that be a (1.2mtr high) manger...? (Trough 2 is still in production).
|RMan made two excellent stables - one in each|
paddock. Why two...?
And two stables with stable doors :)
Our daughter, Natasha, S-i-L Wayne and Mike, our grandson, were also impressed. So much so that they had to try it out - to see if their three canine famiy members could gain access. So, one evening they schepped their pregnant mama goat, and two 5-week-old male kids round to try it out for sze.

Allow me to introduce them all...

and hurting towards me, Mandy :)
Did the dogs manage to get in to the goats in the paddock?
Thank you for your patience - but I had to capture all the effort that went into preparing for the future inhabitants.
All will be revealed in my next posting. The final teaser I can give you is that they are very eco-friendly animals...
