Goat Stand, Guineas, and Frisbee

We did get the goat stand done, but I had to redo the feed holder since Josh broke it while we were moving it. We have since trimmed the hooves of 4 out of 7 goats. Most did well; the Nigerian Dwarf, BoPeep, was the hardest to handle surprisingly.

The corn and sunflowers are still growing. The beetles have been curbed a little by hand-picking. I picked up some guinea supplies at TSC the other day. I found a guy about 15 miles from here selling keets for $1-$2 and I am going to buy some as soon as I get set up.

I don't know about the rest of you but I find it strange that there are only 1.25 books about raising guineas. Gardening with Guineas and Storey's Guide to Raising Poultry. I own them both...

We have developed a mild afternoon exercise regimen here at the homestead: Frisbee. I hadn't really thrown a frisbee since I was a kid and couldn't get it to go where I wanted it. Now I can get it to go where I want it to about 3 out of 5 throws...

Not much else going on at the moment.

  1. My guineas are doing great. I don't have any books about them. They are pretty easy to care for.
