Who Let the Goats Out????


As cold as it was last night, the sun was even warmer in the early morning hours. The sun melted enough of the snow in the goat’s enclosure that they were able to go out!

Oh happy day!!!!

My husband took the lead with Pumpkin so I could take up the rear and collect any curious goats wandering the wrong direction

They were more orderly than I had expected

After the initial excitement of being out calms down, the goats will break up into little groups. They will be paired off mother and daughter or box partners.  Here we have  Pumpkin with  her daughter Rose right behind her and Hilda with her daughter Peanut

As the goats enjoyed their day out after so long in the stables, we released the chickens :

  2. Hej Diana!

    You are too cute! So glad you enjoyed my little herd. Today was wonderful ! I was so so happy with my little goats out in the enclosure. I was also happy that our chickens and roosters could actually come out of the hen house. It was a good day!
