Dixie, at 17 months old, is nearly ready to start guarding the goats (and chickens) full time without supervision. She is allowed to be loose while I am home to watch her, but still must be tied if I will be gone for more than a couple hours.
Here are some pictures of the goats, chickens, and ever-watchful Dixie in the pasture.
The chickens are laying lots of eggs!
One major thing every farmer should do is take time to just watch his (or her) animals.2 people like this
