We awoke in the night to a strange sound. Strange, and yet… oddly familiar.

Judging by the view from my office window, I’ll be mucking wet hay and bedding out of the dairy goat shed. Not my idea of fun, but I have to admit it’s a great workout… The companion exercise that goes along with it will be rebuilding the levy to redirect that downhill-rushing water past the shed. (more…)
