What Now!?

Our last goat, a yearling nanny,  kidded on Sunday with triplets.  Since we had already turned everyone out I thought we could just keep a close eye on the new ones to make sure they were keeping up.  We lost one the second night but the nanny had found it the next day.  Then yesterday I went to check out my trail blazing progress on Hank.  When I got to the cattle guard this is what I found. 
 J had taken the truck out just a little while before I went riding so it could have been stuck then.  The goats were just going across when I got there so maybe it had just fallen in.
 What ever the case, it was glad to be back out.  One of the triples was with the nanny, one stuck in the cattle guard and one was under a tire rim 1/2 a mile away.  I'm not sure I can keep keeping up.
Hank was a dream on my new trail.  I went around and down the front side where I haven't cut yet to see where it would be best to take the trail.  He would stop and stand while I broke branches and backtrack when I would change my mind on which way to go.   We went back and forth a couple of times on the trimmed part to test it from both directions.  V is now helping me with the trimming.   I'm super excited about this new project.

What a day! They sure know how to get into "trouble"!

Oh my! Cattle guards are so much better then a gate! We've had calves, cows and even a horse stuck in the cattle guards! Sheesh.
Love your new trail. Very scenic!
