No, not really. But when you are a one vehicle family and just happened to have already had a little sedan before all this farming stuff started, you make it work.
Needless to say, it worked pretty well. It helped that the local grocery is also a hardware and feed store. We only had to drive our very full “truck” six country miles to get home and encountered just two other vehicles. We were nice and pulled over so they could pass us…. I wouldn’t want to drive behind crazy people like us either.
Friday afternoon, we decided that we needed some plywood to finish up the sides of our new goat shed and some general goat supplies. We tried our very hardest to build a complete shed using all of our recycled materials, but it ended up looking like one of those shacks in the middle of a field that you pass by on the way to nowhere. You know… the ones that are so dilapidated that you could push it over with your pinkie finger. Being the new kids to the neighborhood, we want to make a fairly decent impression and 100% recycled wasn’t looking too pretty. So on the plywood went!
Our “truck” carried 3 people, 50 lbs. of feed, 1 gigantic goat mineral block, 2 sheets of plywood, 1 bale of straw, and 1 box of screws all the way home.
