Thanks for all the tips on cooking goat meat, guys. I really appreciate it.
I didn't get to ride this weekend - we were back at work on the pasture. Got quite a few trees knocked down, too bad they are too small to do anything with other than burn. I wanted to cut them up for firewood, but son in law doesn't want to mess with that, so I guess we'll be having some bonfires on the days that the wind is calm. Here in Oklahoma, that's not too often, but brush piles surrounded by grassy pasture beats stands of trees covering brush and bare ground any day.
I'm sore as all get out, and covered in rashes due to the cedar sap. A couple of the grandkids got into some poison ivy that the horses and goats missed. (It seems that the horses and goats thing poison ivy is some sort of candy?). The grandkids rashes aren't very bad - a little Ivarest and benedryl, and they sleep just fine.
The grandkids also discovered, after all these years, that trees are also good for climbing. The youngest one, though, hasn't quite figured out how to climb back down: Shelbytree1.jpg Shelbytree2.jpg
She's kind of grounded from climbing trees. She tends to climb the ones that aren't big enough for us to climb up and get her!
