As we’ve built things on the farm (house, barn, patio, etc.), we’ve collected lots of big rocks and we thought a couple would make good toys for the goats – they love to play; and it will help keep their hooves trimmed. So, the first job for the new John Deere tractor was to move a couple of boulders into the pasture as goat toys. Just getting the first boulder onto the tractor took three strong guys and pry bars (fortunately family was visiting and willing to help).
Once the boulders were loaded, the tractor made moving them a piece of cake - the front fork attachment worked great.
Turns out the hardest part was figuring out the right spot to put them in the pasture – that took three people directing.
The goats (and our niece) were all over the rocks once they were in place. I predict these toys will be extremely popular; particularly when there’s a little sun to warm them up.
