    Ha talk about a lazy-butt eh? I started this like 2 months ago. Maybe more. Things just got in the way. University stuff got in the way (I GOT MY LOAN WOOHOO!). Farm stuff got in the way.

    Its nothing fancy and could probably do with some minor adjustments to the design. Its more or less from the Fiasco Farm plans but I was kind of working with what I had on hand since we're like.. brrrrrrrrrroke right now. Notice I used picket fence pickets for the head gate ;)

    It still needs to be painted, that creamy colour the leg is painted is what it'll be painted all over. Its called Pebble Path and matches our picket fence. It'll be staying on the front porch in the spot its in right now. It needs a hook and eye too. The goats have not been on it yet, but when I get some new goatie grain (the 13th is when I go to town to pick some up, for now they're on hay -_-) they'll be getting their feet trimmed on it. We're picking April up on the 12th! Weeee.


    And just for fun... lmfao.
