My photo
I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

I know. I was warned!

Now you can all smile knowingly. 
Yes, the shed needed fortification to keep Bazza, the hurdling goat in.
I am sure you are all too nice to say, "I told you so."  

And here is the wee hurdler now!

On a more positive note, Bubba and Bazza have adjusted to being tethered for periods during the day and carry out their assigned task well.  Bubba is more settled than Bazza who can't bear to be out of sight of me or The Cook.  If we leave them he bleats.  Well that is putting it too mildly...he screams!  It sounds as if he is having his throat cut.  But these tantrums are getting shorter.  At night they are quiet in the shed but call if they hear the wire door open or close.

As you can tell by the photo, they have a very big job ahead of them...too big probably.  I think I will borrow a brush cutter from the community tool library and attack the creek bank which drops away sharply from this level area.  Hopefully they will be able to manage after that.

And I love them!
