So Close, Yet So Far


Our garden is just on the other side of the fence from the goat yard.

Nutmeg, aka Rotunda, has been beside herself this afternoon trying to get at the bounty just beyond her reach.

I think she’s thinking about digging a tunnel!

    Suzanne, that’s just cruel! Couldn’t you plant a Nutmeg-sized garden in her yard? LOL!!!

    Just read in a Mother Earth News e-mail about a “chicken moat”, two wire fences running parallel to each other around a garden that allows the chickies to run between them and eat bugs and weeds without getting into the garden. Wonder if it would work for round little goats?

    Poor little thing. She looks so underfed! 😉 The grass is always greener, I guess.

    Watch out, she may bribe Boomer to dig a tunnel for her. “Want a cookie, Boomer?”

  5. CindyP says:

    LOL! whaledancer, I was thinking the same thing…..however if she could get a contest going between Casper and Boomer, it might just work!

    :snuggle: That looks like my goats sticking their heads under the bottom strand of electric fencing,very careful so as not to touch it.

    The poor, starving baby…

    You can call Nutmeg any thing but late for dinner.
