Most of the effort around here lately has been directed towards making sure the goats have a warm, secure place to sleep on cold nights (that will also be a nice, shady escape from the heat next summer). We've swung full force back into work on the goat shed.
There was a brief side project related to entertaining Mellie so we could work. She received a ton of beach and sandbox toys for her birthday back in April, and my mother found my old covered sandbox from when I was Mellie's age. Those things have helped create a great setup where she can play within line of sight of the shed while we work.
She was ready to dive in before everything was finished, and was happy to play for hours, so we left her to it.
The structure went from skeleton to recognizable as a shed faster than expected with some much appreciated help from my father.
Almost ready for goat move in!
