Since we are folks that like to make our hard labor accomplish more that one thing whenever possible, we subscribe to the excellent idea of multi-purposing, where one task completed accomplishes more than one thing. According to Shelley math, the little extra work required to enclose part of the front field will accomplish five things:
1. Keep folks we don't want to come in - OUT,
2. Help keep neighboring critters OUT,
3. Give our bucks a field to graze in summer where as now they only have a small lot that is enclosed,
4. Minimize mowing by me since the goats will help with that, and now that it is designated "pasture" and not "fairway" who cares that is not manicured. This is a farm after all.
5. Prevent me from thinking of turning it into a veggie garden (or worse yet, a gourd field - see below) again.
Yup, maybe being addicted to post-hole diggers isn't such a bad thing after all.
