A couple of weeks ago we finally received more than five inches of rainfall, which helped to green up the goat pasture considerably. Suddenly though, the temperatures soared into the low 80’s over the weekend, which was a perfect opportunity for all of the goat kids to really run around and play!
The grass isn’t very tall, but at least now it’s green, although the goats were much more excited about the rocks than the grass anyway!
However, it seems that some of these rocks in the pasture have become habitat for our resident reptiles…and two Coast Range Fence Lizards were NOT amused about the pitter-patter of tiny goat feet bouncing around above them!
I promise, the lizards did manage to scurry away to safety between bounces.
While the goats were running, jumping, zipping around, and launching themselves off the rocks, Rosie suddenly noticed there was a giant in their midst.
Working together these Lilliputian goats soon toppled the giant to the ground, and Rosie suggested he should be interrogated…
However, it turned out that this ‘giant’ really wasn’t so scary after all.
We’ve been a little quiet the last two weeks while we settle into our new busy spring routine with the goats. We’ve been so busy, we’ve barely had a chance to relax.
Kidding season isn’t quite over yet, either, as Mariposa Lily is scheduled to kid this coming weekend. But in the meantime, here’s a short video of the kids enjoying a sunny afternoon in the pasture.
We’ll post an update when we have more news about Lily.
There have also been a couple of other new additions to the farm this week, but more about them…soon!
