Last year on the day after christmas I was blessed to be given about three dozen left over christmas trees to feed to the goats. However this year, the day after christmas fell on a Saturday and since we don't work that day getting trees was out of the question.
Today the kids and I were headed into town and out of the corner of my eye I spotted a sign that said "FREE branches" that was posted in front of a large pile of fir branches! We quickly finished our errand in town and then came home to get the F-150 and headed back to the location. I picked up enough branches to fill the truck to the roof level of the cab, and could have gone back for more if the truck wouldn't have gotten stuck on the hill coming back up from the goat pen.
The goats will happily strip those branches, including the bark and it will save me at least a little on feed costs. Adonai is good!
