A Walk in the Woods

Down the hill from the Little Barn is a gate into a fenced area in the woods. We call this the doe browse. 

At the bottom of the doe browse is a place to put another gate.

Beyond that is our two-plus unfenced wooded acres. I used to have a walking trail down there, but in the past few years we’ve lost a lot of pine trees from pine bark beetle, so the area is thick with fallen pine trees and new undergrowth. Dan and I have been talking about trying to utilize it. It contains a lot of potential lumber and a lot of good browse for the goats.

“Come on, girls, let’s go take a walk in the woods!”

With our pastures all dried up, this is prime foraging for the goats.

When they’ve had their fill they head back on their own. I can come too if I want.

In the past few days the leaves have really started to turn. It’s been so dry that I wondered if we’d get much color. We are, although the leaves drop quickly. We’ve had breaking-in fires in both our stoves, but our temperatures remain warm with no rain in sight. I’m enjoying the beautiful weather while I can.
