The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Backseat driver

We picked up our first goat today!

A tarp covering the backseat and a junk sheet to absorb any accidents worked like a charm in getting our goat safely home.

Total travel time with our new goat was just over 2 hours.

I hope the goat was reasonably calm during your drive - those horns could do a lot of damage! She probably was a bit dazed by all the new experiences. Glad you got her back safely.
