Fun In The Sun

It was a great spring day, and Jock and I took a long slow walk around the fields and woods this morning.We came out on Kristin's Trail, and as you can see, things are still brown and dead looking.
Things are a lot more lively down by the barn. The newest twins are outside for the third day.
This means there are four herds going into separate fields right now. After fence training this week-end, these little dudes will join the rest of the "nursery" herd.
These bucklings are doing so well, and I am trying to decide if I am keeping one as a commercial buck.
Tempting.Today I managed to get the crocuses in focus, although the breeze had to play around while I zoomed in.
It IS Spring.

It's nice to see your little ones (and Mama) again today. :) Your crocus are pretty, too. We are seeing crocus and daffodils here, too. So nice!

I love goats and think they are almost like dogs. At least the ones I have been around seem content to get their heads scratched and then follow me.

I totally agree Abe. That is the comment we get from everyone. I call them dogs without a bite. Little kids have come here and called the kids puppies.

Zola - the Mom -loves to get a scratch. She'll walk up to you and locate her head under your hand as a hint.
Thanks for looking in and you have so many blogs to gander. It will be a while.

Have a nice day.
