The goats have left the farm

Gretel and the kids have been sold to a 4H family.  The dad said his son shows pigs, rabbits and sheep and wants to add goats to the mix. Originally goats were here to tame the multiflora rose and trim the edges of the woods. My mattock effectively grubs out the brambles and cows and sheep graze the forest edges, all with minimal fencing. We will miss Gretel's curiosity and the kids' hilarious antics and affection.
