Happiness is a warm bed
As requested, here's the link to my big Groovy Green debut, complete with typo. (Just pretend "succeptibility" is a word.)
Meanwhile, I learned something interesting today.
It's a little frustrating to see the goats drop so much hay on the ground, especially since we're buying hay from someone else at this point.
But here's the interesting thing. Much of the hay the goats drop is inside their shelter.
They've already got straw bedding, so you'd think they'd be set.
But guess what happens when you mix straw with hay, plus a little manure and urine, and an occasional splash of rainwater?
You get a nice thick soft heated mattress, that's what. Any gardener with a compost pile knows that greens plus browns plus water plus air makes heat.
When Lori raked out some of the bedding today (it was getting so thick, the goats were losing headroom), the "mattress" was literally steaming.
