The Male Person is So Smart!

With Matthew having gone through the roof of the goathouse we had a bit of a problem. Especially with snow in the forecast. How would we stay out of the weather? We didn't know what was going to happen but we were very surprised when we went into our goat pen the next morning. In fact we were a little bit scared.




We didn't want to get close to it.


I looked from the far angle




The others looked too.



What was it you ask?
It seems that the broken goathouse was turned UPSIDE DOWN!







The male person told the publicist that this was the best way to deal with the problem. Isn't he smart? The publicist put the little goathouse next to the bigger goathouse and also put some plywood up against the holes to help keep the wind out. She is so nice to us!



We were still a little leery. Abby was the first one to get close. She wanted the hay.







Then Matthew gave it a look







He walked over









and nibbled on the log.







After that everyone felt comfortable with this new arrangement.







I will tell you I don't know what we would do without the male person around here.

  5. The simplest things can make the biggest difference, and are often overlooked because they are so simple. You have a very smart male person.

  6. It sounds like you are very lucky to have such resourceful (and caring) people looking out for you!

    Also, it was very wise of you all to be cautious.

  10. They DO come in handy most of the time, don't they?! Reduce, re-use, recycle - flip it upside down and keep using it...great idea!

  12. Well now isn't that male person so smart! It's funny that you all were leary of it since it's the same goathouse, just upside down!

  14. Statch - we are very happy to have the male person around here.

    Carolyn - we do need them no matter the species.

    Laurie - every so often I give the male person a little nudge just to say thank you.

    Jen - yes, the male person can be so simple. heh heh

    JD - one never knows what that male person might be up to.

    missbreezysbox - it is working just fine, thank you for asking.

    Lin - it sure does!

    Texan - he is a clever guy and a bit cheap.

    Split Rock - it's an eco friendly Farm!

    blueviolet - neither did the publicist!

    BeadedTail - but it was DIFFERENT! We goats don't like different.

    Christy - thank you for visiting my blog. The publicist's mother used to breed little wiener dogs like you.

  15. Our male person is very industrious like that too. He claims that anything can be fixed with duct tape.
