And barn mucking day, after last year I tried deep bedding manure lac for extra heat, the barn without deep bedding stays ten degrees warmer than outside, with deep bedding 15-18 with all the adjustable vents wide open!
Six and a half 8 cu. ft. wheel barrows later it's all clean!
I have started making a spinning wheel, based on an antique, but have never spun before so it's all a learning curve!
I have garden tarp style fabric under my straw, so in the summer I just pull up the corners and haul out the " bag" when it needs done. Slightly more work after a winter of deep bedding!
These goats are like dogs I have trained them to do a trick or two each.....so.....

Not only are you learning to spin, but making your own spinning wheel too! I have hair sheep, there is a spinning group in my area, I know if I investigate, I will go out and buy wool sheep. Then i'll buy a spinning wheel......learn to knit and deluge my family with "gifts" LOL! You will have to let us know how your spinning wheel turns out!
