We did the real Alaskan experience last night, pulled an all-nighter in -13° temps quartering a salvage moose. (I posted pics previously.)

Alaska is serious about not wasting game meat. Even salvage moose still has useful meat left after an impact, these animals are just so big. But this poor girls torso was too far gone.

The truck that hit her did not fare well. I hope the occupants are okay.

The best we can do for these animals is make sure they don’t go to waste. The ultimate environmentally friendly action

It’s been a couple Sundays since I’ve posted. And for good reason, it’s summer and we’re wasting daylight. We’ve been putting in the hours. Winter is coming!

From house decluttering and moving the boys into their new shared bedroom, to tearing out damaged fencing around the goat barn and replacing it, we’ve been doing the things.

We still have some chicken wire to put up, the new electric fence and charger to install. A covered hay feeder to build. And a house to finish. Grass to mow. General maintenance to perform. Normal every day stuff to do.

Plus, there’s other projects to get done, some side jobs and company is coming! And projects to finish at the cabin.

I need a clone of myself.

Doing all this farm stuff for these guys.

I picked up a bale of “local” Delta hay last Tuesday and it cost just over $30, one 60# bale. And that’s for the rabbits! It should last well into the winter tho. These goats, they can put the hay away. They cleared out the barnyard in like two days. Time to start staking them out around the place.

Gotta watch for bears tho.
