anybody like to hazard a guess as to what that steel strip is...looks like thin stainless to me...8 ft long X 2ft wide

thanks in advance (so can get a piece for the goats at the Spokeshave residence)

It’s a rain shelter for that billy goat that is staked nearby.
It’s probably at least 3’ wide, maybe wider. Would not block much rain if it was only 2’ wide.

Goats really are like kittens in their playfulness. And age isn’t a barrier.

Feed them green walnut husks and get those wormy critters out...mix some Stevia leaves so its sweet taste for the goats...

The complete Herbal handbook for farm and stable by Juliette de Bairacli Levi ISBN 978-0-571-16116-4

Some of the medications work for humans also....my need it when single player Obamacare kicks in.

we have over 300 goats.....we worm them every month and 3 days later we move them into new pastures...it just rains to damn much here...thinking of getting rid of them and raise cattle...we live in cattle country. My goats are not wormy due to my diligent, but the work is hard for a old man...even have a goat shoot. Herbal remedies are not cost affective. Pastures we use have abundance of walnut trees and they eat them freely...goats are better keep in very dry climates we get over 40 inches of rain here a year not good for worm control. thank you for the advice

LOL — goats are funny people.

I wonder what’s up with goats and climbing on top of stuff.
