Baby goat season is almost upon us! Sadie is due this coming Monday! Here’s a picture of her with her kid from last year, Sunflower. I’m doing the stream today at 5pm MST (usual time). https://youtu.be/md3e1_9CM-8
Easter was a subdued event this year compared to pre-panpanic days, but at least we were able to do anything at all. Last year all festivities were canceled so we were happy to be able to participate in a slimmed-down Easter celebration.
The kids always look forward to meeting our goats at the community Easter egg hunt, but this year the hunt was called off and replaced by a drive-thru distribution of Easter goodie bags. We filled Finn and Sputnik’s panniers with goodie bags and walked up to the cars to deliver them to the kids. We had fun decorating them for the occasion.
Sputnik and Finn were very generous about reaching up to the car windows so the kids could lean out and pet their noses and feed them some treats that we brought.
The other day on our walk I found a stray balloon in our pasture. I brought it home and showed it to the goats to see what they thought of it. Since I was handing out treats they didn’t pay much attention, but I soon realized I’d accidentally “fed” the string to Finn when I was giving him a cookie. He was chomping on the string and kind of eyeing the balloon suspiciously and I facetiously prodded the balloon with my toe to see what would happen. I was not prepared for the explosion which followed!
I hope you are doing well today! For this week’s stream I’ve got some classic Cuzco moments from 2008 to share with you! See Cuzco eat things & defend his honor against a small cat! https://youtu.be/4T0ziwdrV6o
This week I’m going all the way back to 2011, when we only had one goat: Cuzco The Goat! I’ve also got a special guest this week, Kimberly Hope, my violin teacher. We’ll be playing a duet of an Irish waltz for you!
