Just For A Quickie

I stopped just for a minute to tell you all what has been going on around here. A few days ago, one of my friends called and told me she was going to go to AZ for the winter and wondered if I could watch her animals for her until she comes back. Since she lives 2 hrs away, I wasn't going to go down there twice a day to feed, so she brought her goats, chickens, and rabbits up here. The only problem was, we really didn't have things set up for more animals.

So what do we do? We MAKE room for more animals. lol. Hubby makes 10 rabbit cages, and one pretty good size goat house.  All of this happened this weekend!  We were running around like chickens with their heads chopped off. And, we still aren't done!  The rabbits are under a tarp. The goats are in small dog pens. And the chickens, well, they're doing fine. We were all set up for them. hehehe.

So in the next few days, we have to finish the goat house. We also have to clean out Hubby's "garage" so we can transform it into rabbit central. (That's going to be a JOB!)  Oh, and the chickens? They're going to be okay. : )

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, very busy!

That's alot of work. What a good friend you are! I have been lucky in having a wonderful, young lady who come to our house to take care of the animals when we travel...which isn't often.
