Replacing electric pole

The electric co op came out to inspect our lines and decided we need to have an upgraded meter and a pole replaced. This pole is on the fence line between the goat pen and our yard. There is also a tree in the way of replacing pole so the tree was cut and half ended up in the yard and other half in goat pen...
The half that fell in the yard is waiting on hubby to come home to help me with cutting and clean up (more firewood). The half that fell in the pen with the goats....
They are enjoying an unexpected snack along with a new toy to run around and jump on....
Here also are our two new little ones, on the right is Bucky and left is Sadie
Goats are so fun to watch, they find play in everything around them.  When we get all this cleaned up so the co op can set the new pole I can't wait to see what the goats think of the new pole and I also ordered a dust to dawn light for the top of the pole so some of their pen will be lit at night....


  1. Hi, I found you on somebodies blog list and dropped by for a visit. Any time I see trees cut down or bushes trimmed, I always think of my goats! How they love that stuff and it's amazing how much brush is thrown away when some critter could be eating it. I hope they aren't wanting to install one of those "smart meters."

  2. Hi Leigh, not sure I think I will ask Monday but if they are bet I don't get a choice. The meter I have now is over 40 years old....

  3. Actually, you are supposed to get a choice on the meter, even if it is being replaced anyway.

    It seems goats try jumping about three minutes after they get to their feet. They amaze me. And, I would really not like having goats. Well, having them in a pen would be fine. Some people have them running all over the place, on porch, on cars.

  4. Hi Linda, I called and left a message with the engineer, fingers crossed.
    My goats are in a pen, I tried letting them run around but as soon as I let them out they were trying to get into the yard and were climbing on one of the cars! They have a 100 acres they could roam on but chose the car and yard so I built a good sized pen just for them! :)


Please leave a comment, would love to hear from you :)
