With the goat girls leaving at the end of the month, new plans have been made for the milking shed. I still feel really bad about my husband helping me build such a sweet shed only to change my mind about the whole milking thing. But it's such a great shed, we knew it would always have a purpose.
It didn't take long for the shed to be claimed by our oldest son for falconry. Funny, that spot on the farm was claimed by him and was then taken by me (eminent domain, you know).
Now he has it back.
So, the goats have moved down the row to the old buck pen until they move to Tennessee.
Lambert has the big pen with the run-in on the side of the shed.
And the goat shed has become the new Hawk Hut.
It will make a perfect mew (hawk or falcon house). A few adjustments and it's ready for a bird.
Wooden bars on the dutch door to prevent it from flying away.
Jake will be on the hunt to trap a Redtailed Hawk beginning this weekend. Then the training will begin. It's an exciting adventure. With this bird he will complete his two year apprenticeship and become a general falconer for the rest of his life.
