"Ok I am thinking I will try this out for my Chickens, the original plan was to put up a Garage in a Box ($400.00!) but this sounds a little less expensive. I did see photos of one with small hay bales around the outside to provide a little…"

"I am so glad others have enjoyed this. I was just amazed when I saw this goat heeling, spinning and backing up. I hadn't thought about horses either. My dogs and puppies get so excited when I have the clicker. They know good things are coming.…"

Clicker Training a Goat

I love clicker training. I use it to train all my dogs and puppies. It's an amazing tool, but I have to admit I've never considered using it to train my goats. At least not until I saw this. Amazing. I've had such amazing success with dogs using a clicker that I don't have to be sold on it's value as a training tool. It's what they use at places like Sea World to train the marine animals and was introduced to dog trainers by a former Sea World trainer, Karen Pryor. She has a number of books…See More

"Your right.... They are super easy and super affordable for what you end up with. I use almost this same design for animal housing too. I move my goats and now the pigs every 6 - 9 months to a new location and this cattle panel concept makes it…"

Building a permanent greenhouse with cattle panels - part 1

The greenhouse today - still a lot to doLast year I decided I wanted to build a small greenhouse. I wanted to have a place to start seedlings and be able to pot things in the spring out of the weather and then let them grow on till weather allowed them to go outside. Since then I've also done a lot of reading about 4 season growing and decided I would like to…See More

Hi Elizabeth - welcome to HOMEGROWN! Your blog is wonderful! Your stories so engaging and the pictures (baby piglets - gah!!!) charming. Something that folks with blogs do here is repost their work as a member blog. It's a great way for us to get to know you and to build community. It's a pretty easy cut and paste. Let me know if you have any questions and enjoy the site!
