Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!
I've been looking at my March calendar, and I'm getting a little excited. It's pretty empty! I'm hoping things are going to calm down this month.
Pippy and Addy are doing great. We are locking them up every night now, of course, and have blocked the gates with extra fencing. We really think it was dogs, and we think they must have gone over the gates. We also are in the process of moving our solar fence to all the way around the barn and goats' fence. This is for a couple reasons. The goats will have more foraging room during the day and while we are home. When we aren't home during the day, the goats will be protected by two fences. At night, we'll keep them locked up.
We're also talking about how to add some more protection to our animals. We're limited on space, but we didn't get a flock of guineas last year and we think that is one of the things that hurt us. So we're going to get some more guineas. If we ever have room, we'd like to add a miniature donkey to our barnyard. Anyway, maybe in all that free time I'll have in March I'll be able to write some more posts with more information.
Now on to the hop...Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to's, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more!
