I run my worldwide business, The Fitz Like A Glove Ironing Board Cover And Other Goodies, from my remote 54 hectare rural property. In the picturesque Central Tablelands of NSW.
We have many wild visitors to our paddocks. That are very welcome.
Goats. Foxes. Birds. Kangaroos.
Many of them can be heard in our hectare of garden at night.
Kangaroos especially. And Willie Wagtails. In the month of November. When they’re nesting.
During the day we see foxes and the occasional stray wombat. Stroll through our garden.
But I draw the line at goats.
They’re destructive. And will eat anything in sight. Including my treasured 200+ roses. Lavender. Vegetables. And herbs.
We discovered that the goats had discovered our garden last week.
As with all things, there is a weak link in our fence. A weak link that’s been ignored by the wild goats for 24 years.
But no longer.
Today I heard their bleating. It’s unmistakable. It sounds like a baby crying.
One was standing at my front door.
I called out to my 12+ year old Tri-Coloured Rough Collie. Daisy Mae. To let her out. To chase the goats away.
When she didn’t respond. I went looking for her.
She was in our bedroom. Seeking refuge from having to be on goat duty.
At 84+ years of human life, she just didn’t feel like she was up to it.
The goats are easy to spook. Just speak to them in a loud voice. And they can’t jump the weak link in the fence fast enough.
Standing outside my front door. Sounding stern. Is all it takes. Six goats. Despatched. Within the blink of an eye.
Until next time.
There’s a chore coming up. It’s to fix that weak link in the fence.
Living a rural life is always busy. But I wouldn’t trade it for the city for anything.
