Here's wishing everyone a wonderful new year! I have to say I'm not going to miss 2010 a whole lot... it could have been worse but there's an awful lot of room for improvement. Goat-wise, we have plans to try to finish moving goats to the FLAT farm, where we might actually be able to get water and/or power. The fence isn't dependent on voltage (don't let anyone tell you it is a great idea to use a high tensile electric fence in the woods - when it works it works well but when a tree falls on it, or the creek floods and buries the bottom wires in debris, or the goats manage to knock the connections loose - it might as well be an open gate, all the way around). We might actually get a building in which to store hay! Hoorah! And, as always, we plan to keep trying to breed the toughest goats going with great maternal instincts, while still keeping decent growth rates and a lot of meat and muscle.
Best wish to all for a productive, progessive, New Year with good health, good family, good friends, and good goats!
