Let's see....yesterday we bought seed for the chickens, PVC pipe to run drainage at the goat barn, and 3 cattle panels to fix the fence (our neighbor's dog, that they let RUN LOOSE, had gotten in the goat pen. When told about it, said neighbor told us "just shoot the b*****d!"...which is not really a big help, y'know?).

Sweet Geek said "Yeah. 3 16' panels should be enough. I'm sure of it!"..which of course means that 3 won't even BEGIN to cover the spread. We needed 5. :lol: Still, the 3 are up and will keep the dog out; we'll go next weekend and pick up some more.

The goats are doing well. They're getting fat......I can't tell if it's kids or food. :lol: I scored some more books - the best is a Vet book by Peter Dunn, the other 2 are reprints of English goat books. (By A. Abbey and M. Gorden, I think...) They're good - and not the same as the 2 modern books I have.

Today I am supposed to fix the chicken coop roof. We'll see.......we were supposed to set up the Sweater Machine...got the box open! That's something, I guess. :lol: Cowboys play at 3.....so the day is already pretty much shot. :lol:

cattle panels

Those little devils used to cost $36 bucks here...now they are about $85 I am always curious what they cost in other places. I use them for everything, but...if I would have known how the price was going to go up I would have bought stock in the company, ya know?

Re: cattle panels

Wow. These are the Utility Cow panels, and McCoy's had them for $17.99. Which is CHEAP.....when I built the goat feeder, I (stupidly!) bought the "goat" panel....$49. For *1*. If I had to do it over again, I'd buy these and just use the "top" portion (where the squares are larger). I know better now....

Are you talking about the panels used for round pens? THOSE are about....$119/each here. :shudder: I really don't want anything to happen to my round pen - I can't afford to replace it!
