Today we started early and got the rest of the pasture fenced in with our son, Andy's help. The fenceline in that paddock is so steep it took three of us handle it. We finished about 1:30 and it was already 88 degrees. Really hot in April for doing this type of work. We'll finish putting the barb wire along the top and hanging the gate next week. We can handle that ourselves. After lunch, we rode to Stokesdale to Sadie's Herbal Garden. I bought some essential oils and a goat soap mold for more soapmaking supplies. I was happy to find this shop. They were very helpful and answered lots of questions. We've been seeing Sadie's while passing by on our way to Danville, VA to the Virgina-Carolina Livestock Market but had never stopped. We also drove to Reidsville to a flea market to check on some fans that they had been selling. They were big factory fans that mount on the wall. I was thinking of getting one for the deck but they only had one speed - - fast. I'll have to keep looking for the right fan for that area. On the way back, we swung by Jenkins Road in Winston-Salem to check out the parking situation for a UNCSA, School of Filmmaking's film. We'll be taking some of our goats there tomorrow for the filming of the movie, By The Fire by Priscilla Anany-Williams. We will be carrying the goats in a trailer and will need room to park and turn around since this location is on a dead end street.
