We take our goats for walks. No, they don’t need to be on a leash. They just walk along with us, eating the shrubbery as we go. I think they see us as part of the herd. I flatter myself to think I’m herd leader. But they do go wherever I go. I have gotten to know a lot of the local flora, as a result, because I want to know what is poisonous to goats. Privet leaves, okay (but not the berries). Milkweed, no. Gum saplings, great. Cherry leaves, no. Etc. We go a little faster past the ‘no’ plants and goats speed up with us. Then we dawdle. It’s pretty fun.
Here’s what happens when you try to take a picture of a goat.
Fancy, the mostly white goat, is pregnant and due in about two weeks. She is our double-wide goat.
Isn’t she cute? We are very excited to see the babies. Stay tuned.
