I had to take Desmond to the vet yesterday to get his staples taken out, which gave me a chance to come home mid-day to see how everything was going, and then work from home for the rest of the day (after almost 3 hours of driving in the middle of the day, but that's what happens when you live in the woods).
I took the goats out for a walk-ish and one of them was "touched" by the fence as well. The smaller, darker goat is extrmely jumpy and afraid of me. The larger one is calmer. One night this week, I'm going to put out another fence section in a greener part of the yard and let them out for a while. I'm a little terrified of poisoning them. I know about the rhododendrons and pieris japonica being poisonous to goats, but need to bone up on other things.
Thinking about the chicken coop in progress. There's only one way to get it off my back, and that's to finish it. I may have made the wrong decision in choosing this coop over making one from scratch, but it doesn't change what needs to be done. Finish it.
