Some signs are very common-- everyone has them
|These are very necessary to us, as we live in a wooded area, and hunting season is full of, well, hunters. It works pretty well on the hunters (so far), but it does not work on the local kids, who still use our creek as a swimming hole.|
|I don't remember where I saw this quote, but I liked it, so I made it into a sign.|
|Proceed at your own risk|
|Yup, everyone got a sign on their gate|
But with the arrival of our newest farm members
|I told you everyone got a sign. I don't lie!|
They're not done yet, so I can't take a picture, but this is what they will say. Some are straight forward, and some are fairly snarky, because I am apparently a snarky kinda girl. (I didn't know that, but after I saw this definition: A witty mannerism, personality, or behavior that is a combination of sarcasm and cynicism. Usually accepted as a complimentary term. Snark is sometimes mistaken for a snotty or arrogant attitude.
Yes, that's me.)
And it's my farm. 'Nuff said.
In the straightforward category:
"If you feed our goats, please be prepared to pay the vet's bill. Thank you"
Straightforward and snarky-ish:
"Many plants are poisonous to goats. Do you know what they ALL are? Please don't feed our goats."
"Our goats' browsing is carefully watched. Yours isn't. Please don't feed our goats."
And finally, snarky with some humor attached:
"These goats are our milk supply--Please don't play with our food."
I happen to like the last two the best, but that's because I am who I am. I'm figuring most people won't get the last one, but I think it's funny, and that's all that matters. For those who don't understand it, the other three should help them out.
Look! Another sign!
