Thank you for all your wonderful, crazy suggestions for the use of the repurposed shed.
I love all your ideas!
(It's a heart)
I am surprised no-one suggested rabbits.
If you thought the shed was for a camel you would have been wrong. The roof is too low.
Tortoise would have been incorrect too.
I am very partial to miniature galloping horses.
But the correct answer is goats...two.
This is the best I could do for a goat...you are looking at the back end!
Although our block is less than half an acre, there is a fair bit of land at the back of the property and a steep creek bank that I can't mow. Lots of grass for goats. The neighbours like the idea too, so that means more grass. We are getting two because they are herd animals and one on its own can get sad.
And the winner is.....!
Kimmy guessed correctly (though we aren't going to milk them at this stage) but then changed her mind and withdrew that guess. Anyway, Kimmy is building a very posh Farm Stay apartment at her place and is probably too good for this prize.
'Anonymous' was correct, but how will you prove it is you? That is the price you pay for being a lurker and not owning up to who you are!
I have decided that I will offer the prize to Ali, because although her guess of a pole dancing studio was incorrect, I liked the idea and besides, she always laughs at my jokes. I am hoping that when she visits she will show me some of her best moves on the pole. So Ali, please leave your email in a message and I will get back to you about arranging for your stay. Please read the fine print below before claiming the prize.
As you can see from the photo on the left, the shed is ready and the bed made up.
Most exciting of all...today we got the Goat Mix. Going by the picture on the front it should be enough to make two goats. I can't find any instructions on how to mix it. I suppose you just put it with water and leave it over night and the goats will be there in the morning. I wouldn't think you have to cook it. I have examined the picture closely and can't tell if they will be boys or girls. Hoping for two girls.
