Goat Two Ring Circus

This will be Brees' last day here. He's been kicking up his heels about his new adventure.Tomorrow he moves in with his new goat roomie and friends nearby. In preparation, he has been tagged so he can legally leave the premises. Goats and sheep need a scrapies tag to identify what farm they came from. That whole bio security thing. Scrapies is mostly a sheep problem that goats can catch from sheep. Its difficult to do, but happens. The problem is, it is a disease like mad cow disease, so the herd would likely be culled.

I was lucky to get Brees and the "big" twins in a very playful mood. Enjoy the clips. I'll bore you with all three. The choreography is amazing
