"I am freaking awesome!"

Yes, another quote from Nikita. This one is certainly more positive. We found excellent instructions for constructing a goat stand ( Nikita took on this project for herself-- once good ol' Dad and Mom bought the supplies...

Micah seems to be memorizing how to use the drill. This doesn't bode well, we had better keep it properly stored out of reach!

Nikita is truly an expert with the drill quite quickly; this time Amelia is watching a little too closely.

Dad being helpful?

Oh no, what is the next step??

Amelia calmly steps in with a reminder to follow the directions.

Ta da! Nikita has every right to be proud of this goat stand (without being boastful, of course).

Amelia and Gidget are demonstrating how it works. Nikita still needs to put on a hook-over feeding dish. She also is considering adding some non-slip strips to the top so the goats don't slip. (Ambrose is in the background wishing he was the one demonstrating and eating the grain!)

Since it was so simple and affordable, Nikita would now like to use the web and fliers to advertise and sell goat stands that she makes.
