Experimenting with Sun Hemp this year. It grew 30" in 30 days. I put a two string electric fence around it to keep them out while it grew. When I let them in I moved the two wires to the top of the post so they can go under. We cut a path, installed another fence to split it up and rotational graze it. When I move them to the other section I can move the two strands lower on the post in this field and move the other field's wires to the top of the posts. It has some corn in it also. The goats are loving it.
Our bucklings are into the peas now. This is a mixture of mostly peas with some corn, sorghum sudan grass, and buckwheat. The white flowers are the buckwheat blooming. If you click on a photo you can see a slide show of larger photos.

We had some strong winds that blew down a Persimmon Tree. They are having a field day. They also search the woods for blown limbs after the storms.
Picasso is one of our triplet machines. She had triplets her first two years of kidding. She deserves a break. Here she is with her fat triplet does. She had two doelings and one buckling last year. Her does from last year can be seen on our does page. Look for Ruby and Precious.
