I'm far from healed, but I'm praying and taking each moment at a time. The Lord has been merciful and I've had restful nights, too. Many of you were concerned for me and I didn't want you to worry too much. I tire easily, but when the energy is there, I will try to continue blogging. I've never been one of those people who can faithfully blog every day, although I sure admire those of you who do! But if you're willing to stick around, I will continue to post from time to time, Lord willing ~smile~.
We have added a bottle-fed wether goat to our small farm! A wether goat is a castrated male. He was purchased for $20 and our intention was to train him to pull a cart for hauling wood when he grows bigger. He follows my son everywhere! Farmer D bought him on impulse before we had fencing in place, but I'm surprised that he doesn't roam.
Because of the lack of fencing, the little guy has started eating the lower leaves of our apple trees and climbing on the vehicles! That's not a big surprise, considering the nature of goats. We're also concerned that he could do some damage to the hoses and wiring under the trailer.
We could keep the wether in a pen, but would need to add more goats for companionship, and we're not ready to commit to that yet. Sooo, it looks like he will have to be butchered at some point and put in the freezer.
He's such a cute little fellow and often comes to the door of our trailer, bawling for attention! Well, so much for impulsive purchases!
