I was cutting the lawn today for the first time and after about an hour I got a flat tire and decided to take a break while waiting to see if the tire held air. It was a good time to take the kids on a field trip. They got to explore the yard with their moms. I wish I had my camera with me when they were down below the orchard because it was so much prettier down there. I didn't want to go back to the house and leave my dogs, Rosie and Lex, babysitting while I was gone. I waited till everyone got closer to the house then got the camera. Rosie and Lex loved the little guys and the kids didn't seem too terribly afraid of them either after a little while. Poor little Darla would come up to see Rosie and Lex and they'd ignore her like a little sister since they were used to having her around. Lex did give her a bath though when she persisted trying to get his attention. He bathes her every morning and she lets him. Lex got head butted by two of the moms when they didn't want him near. Mostly they ignored him.
I was wondering if I'd be able to get 7 adult goats and 13 kids back in the barn when it was time but it was no problem at all. All I had to do was ask nicely and they followed. I didn't even have to bribe with food. I'm sure they'll all sleep well tonight.
