    I'm kinda stuck there myself, though my new digger-driver-friend kindly removed quite a bit of the mess from the back for me last week :)

    My brother will be bringing his excavator up in a few weeks he has a couple of jobs lined up in the area while he is here I'm hoping to get some grubbing done and cleanup some of the mess. There is a lot of sheep laurel in my area its poisonous to sheep and goats and I need to get rid of it so I can make the goat pen larger. The rest of the area will be the start of a new vegetable garden.

    I created a new thread for my homestead I'm not sure if I created the link right but here it is https://www.sufficientself.com/threads/pj-homestead.16095/

    Hopefully it works. If not I will try to figure out how to create a link. I plan to use the new thread to provide updates on our homestead journey.

    You are finding your way around here on the forum just fine. Your goat house is very nice, what breed of goats are they?

    They are pygmy goats. I am new to goats so I'm not sure if there is a more specific breed name. They are 4 months old we got them a little over a week ago. They were very skittish at first but they are starting to settle in and warm up to us.

    My neighbour had his backyard cleared last week and the driver scraped some of mine as well. I posted HERE. He cleared a huge mess and a well established line of brambles in about 4 days. Your brother should be able to help you a LOT with the excavator! Those things are amazing :)
