If you didn't guess by the title it's Storm's ninth birthday today! I can't believe she's nine. It doesn't seem like it's been that long, yet I can't remember a time when she wasn't there. :)
Oh and I have great news! We finally got the lease on the forty acres of pasture that adjoins the backside of our property! Chrome, Zep and the goats are going to think they've died and gone to heaven! The lady who was leasing it had one single horse on forty acres and he was so fat I was sure he'd founder any day, but she refused to let go of the lease until now. I don't know why she decided she didn't need it anymore, but I'm thrilled we finally get it. Pictures below.
A lot of it has gone to weeds because the woman didn't keep up with the brush hogging agreements in the lease. We definitely will and with the goats' help we'll have it back to prime pasture grass.
This is a view from about three quarters across the pasture. Click to enlarge where I circled our house. The critters aren't going to know what to do with so much room after being on two acres for so long lol. I can't wait until we sign the lease agreement and we can start throwing up some temporary electric fences. I don't completely trust my neighbors so there are certain areas I don't want them going into. Anyway just had to share the exciting news. We've waited almost four years for this. :)
