I'm afraid the tool of the day is a repeat. It's the muck boot. We had at least two inches of rain overnight, and I spent the day dealing with it. The rain (combined with a few 40mph gusts of wind as a prelude) revealed some inadequacies in our current goat housing, and made the poor critters quite unhappy. No frolicking--just staying in the dogloo and moping.
So, the day was spent cleaning out soaked bedding and winterizing. If you're doing that, you want muck boots.
