The Goats Are Getting Bigger
Our twice-daily practice on the leash and time spent together is getting to be fun. I'm trying to handle them a bit more, their legs, their feet, etc., so they get used to me doing stuff to them. We play for a few minutes in their area before they go into the shed. They play king of the mountain on a bench and do real sk8boarder antics jumping off the bench.
Every morning when I bring them into the overgrown area (the same one for the last 2 weeks), the first place they go is to this blueberry bush, and then the next blueberry bush. I don't mind donating 2 blueberry bushes to the goats - I've got plenty more, and they're learning valuable skills, like how to push down a branch and how to work together. It's for a greater cause!
