Life in another small town like all small towns...really

I was heading up to move some fences, and stopped to check on the babies, outdoors for the first time.
They were sunning themselves against the back of the shed. A favorite spot it seems.
As I was leaning on the fence, Saba started snorting and acting quite odd.
I'd never seen a goat "sit" like this.
She was doing all she could to put her body over and around her babies as she tried to stare down the cats. Even her ears were pointed at the cat.
Here's more of the action and the sounds of Saba snorting.
That's one thing about goats, they confront. They don't run away. We find it very curious that the goats seem to be most afraid or disturbed by the cats. Only one goat had gone after the dog when she had new kids. Makes you wonder what they fear.
The blog is really notes to my friends, old and new, to let you know what's going on in our lives. Its also a diary of sorts for myself. It started at the farm in Ligonier, PA, hence the name, but now life and work has moved us back to Connecticut,
I've always taken lots of photos and sent postcards from everywhere we travel, just to keep in touch. Email took over and then the digital camera.
Instead of me plugging up your email, you can check in when you have the time.
And yes, another town with the same problems as any other!!!
Please enjoy and let me hear from you...really~

I know a lot of people know English much better than we know any other language, but for those that want some help, me included, I'm trying this translator. Please leave a message to let us know where you are viewing from. Ciao!
