Temporary goat shelter

Temporary goat shelter

Before kicking Abigail out of the goat shed, Mark took a couple of minutes to cobble together a basic, temporary shelter for her. It's been awfully dry lately, so I think between Goat in the shadethe tarp and the IBC tank our doe will be fine for the next week.

I was actually more worried about how the ultra-social Artemesia would respond to being neighbors instead of roommates with Abigail. To my surprise our first freshener's reaction consisted of chewing her cud and taking advantage of the peace and quiet to sleep in the next morning. Maybe Mark's gut reaction to separate them weeks ago would have been the right decision after all.
