Achilles' Habitat Happiness!

Under construction!
Under construction!

Land cleared, posts in and a big shout out to Warren Wilson College and their Service Learning Department!  We had many senior students complete their service learning requirement at Full Moon Farm throughout the spring, and made some great friends too.

Building safe and secure enclosures are difficult in the mountains, so extra precautions are always necessary, such as posts closer together, overlapping fencing, double layers of fencing, extra staples and extra hog ring fasteners.  For an animal such as Achilles, lean ins are necessary, as is a double gated entry, allowing for feeding and watering to be completed without entering the enclosure.

Achilles' new habitat is a work in progress, and when completed, it will be safe, secure and enriching!  At over 1500 square feet, and set on a slight hill, he will be set off the main tour area, and not have close neighbors.  His shelter will be experimental, but it will allow him to get up on it, and survey his kingdom!

Here are some pictures of the 'work in progress', and we hope that you enjoy them.
