December already???

Where does the time go?

Here we are in December and Christmas is right around the corner!
Our latest project was a small annex to our horses' run-in. Marc amazingly finished this project in just under a week, and that was along with working regular hours at his job and taking care of all the usual necessities around the farm. I was the support team, assisting with important tasks like finding the raccoon in an old abandoned building on our property.
Actually, I was trying to reclaim some lumber for use in the addition but, how can a person not get distracted by something as cute as this?
At any rate, we now have a nice area where we can store some of the horse equipment a little closer to where it is needed. The next project for this area is to add a hay feeder.
In the mean time, we are slowly getting ready for winter and all the wonderful and not-so-wonderful stuff that comes along with it. Holiday preparations are on track and, dare I say, even a bit ahead of where we usually are.
We have been getting a tremendous amount of customer interest in some of the goats recently. Most of the calls are for meat goats and it seems as though there is more demand than we have supply at the moment - a good thing for sure! Hopefully this coming year will bring us an even larger kid crop so we have more animals for customers to choose from.
