Greener Pastures

As hoped, we moved the shed for the nanny goat herd, to a new, closer field, and brought in one of the Electronets to continue training the newest kids to all the fences. At first we just brought in Layla, with Zahra and Zuri, and Trinity, with Ziggy, to explore the shed, and see if they tested the new fences again. The kids had a fine time checking all the play options of the shed. The moms abandoned them for all the new, terrific, fresh grasses and rose bushes to munch. Today was a double whammy: high tensile fences, AND, the rest of the herd. We had a small buffet for the big reunion, which was devoured quickly. Then the families broke off to discover the fresh salad bar of offerings in the field, and were not disappointed.


The kids were kids, and found the play area, where they quickly showed off their skills.Naturally, Tisa and Ella, the now "big" twins, had to check out the play area too, but did not give the new kids any grief. They also were more interested in checking out lunch. Or is that hiding in their lunch? Even the nanny crowd couldn't stop talking with their mouths full, they were so impressed.
