What a boring time of year!!!! No snow in the valley. Temps in the high 30s low 40s.
Can't get to my LR shooting spot. No ATV or Snowmobile.
All projects are pretty much finished. Including the goat packs.
Found some items at the army surplus place which turn out to be nearly perfect. Minimal effort to rig them for goat packing.
Made corrugated plastic liners for them to keep a nice crisp shape. Worked really well.
Used some left over local political campaign signs that the folks were too lazy to pick up. Nothing gets by me.
Stuck 'em on the goats this morning loaded with 26 pounds of stuff for each of the larger goats. The little one packs nothing. He's just a kid.
Worked on getting through barbed wire fences. It worked out quite well. The goats caught on really quick. It seems that goats have some kind of inherent drive to go through fences. Pretty much like Angus cattle.
It's as simple as spreading the fence sufficiently than asking the goat to go through. Once the head goes across its total commitment from then on. Be careful to keep fingers from between fence wire and saw buck. I said a bad word or two.
Next summer and season is gonna be fun....
