Goat Flirting and The Shed Demolition Continues

It seems hard to believe how easy it is to spot a goat in heat once you know what you are looking for. I now realize that some of the girls are more aggressive then others, just like people. The short video below shows a bit of the tail wagging that the females do.

Well, as we work around the barn and house on this nasty day, Dave let me know that Vinnie was in heat. I bet he never though he'd know this much about a goats reproductive habits.

Vinegar, I will say in my limited experience, has been the least demonstrative. I expected that she would be more vocal since she usually is anyway.

Should you be concerned about Bucky and his being alone, just know he is continuing on the shed renovation, so that, according to Dave, he can see the girls completely.

He may have regretted loosing the one side this afternoon as the rain turned sleety. He and Vinnie were both trying to squeeze into the one corner that is left to stay dry. As a rule, goats prefer shelter when its precipitating hard.
