The goats are always standing on their hind legs to eat choice leaves from trees, whenever they do this it always reminds me of the segment from Jurassic Park when the brontosaurus stands on two legs to eat from the top of the tree.
Addison would hate the comparison.
Gidget got a haircut yesterday, she looks so soft and sleek in the sunlight now. Gidget will be bred this year, I hope she is ready.
Since I began milking her Becca Boo has been much more interested in being touched and hence more demanding of attention. Her new neediness now means I now have three drama queens and Chip - the King of trouble finders.
When the goats are let out the first thing they do is run to see if they can get in the coop area to get at the chicken scratch. If that door is closed they head to the entrance of the sheep area to see if they can get at their hay. As a last resort they nibble in the woods then head for the deck to cause trouble and try to get into the house. They like the deck because Sara won't try to "herd" them off it and back to their pen, it is a dog "Safe" zone.
The picture above shows Becca Boo taunting Sara from the safety of the deck, meaning I have to get her myself if she is going to get put back into her pen.

I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
