The road on which I live had a large machine go by a few weeks ago that did some pretty major trimming along the side of the road. Unfortunately, this trimming involved a lot of trees with pretty wide trunks, including a lovely old apple tree. I don't know why the county felt a need to get quite so vigourous with their brush cutting, but the outcome was a massive mess of branches and lots of young spruce trees that were cut off at the base.
I gathered quite a few of these felled trees and dragged them up to the barn, because the goats love spruce, so it was a free food source that was pre-cut for me to haul up to the hungry herd! As you can see, they are very pleased.
Here we go - wee Westley to the left and Fezzik to the right, along with the sheep in the background, all having a good gnawing on a spruce!
Wee Fezzik has been doing well with his winter turtleneck-coat on and seems to be at least maintaining his weight despite the cold, which was what I had hoped for. He still gets his special molasses oats treat every day to keep the weight on him as much as I can without giving him a case of the runs!
Moving on, you may recall, if you are a regular reader, that a while ago we bought cabinets to re-do the kitchen here. We're not quite ready to do that project yet, but when we bought those cabinets, we bought a few extra units so that we could install some in my upstairs "studio" area, giving me places to store yarn, spinning fibre, dye materials, and other goodies. It is with much excitement that I can tell you that the project to install these cabinets is set for Sunday! Woohoo!!
Here are the cabinets that we have moved upstairs in preparation for the project! There are two like the cabinet facing the camera on the left. Nice big drawer and cupboard. Then there is a smaller one (narrower) that is the same height.
