My life in the country with my goats.com site

Today , finally the goats came out !!! (Part 2)


Sorry I was unable to post yesterday. It wasn’t because the goats were out, they were not. We had pre-winter weather yesterday; strong cold winds and rain and sleet. So we had indoor activities yesterday. today was not a day to be out either…snow all day!!!!

So here is more of our 1 good goat outdoor day this Spring:

This looks cute  and fun but it's actually developing goat ranking in the herd. It's even important for the babies to establish some order

It was a lovely day and a lovely experience to watch our goats outside having a wonderful time. I love to photograph them; I shot 220 frames on that day. They are just so beautiful and so full of personality, that I just can’t resist.
