The evening couldn’t have been more perfect, not too hot, not too cold.    It was to time leash up the goats,  go to the Lower Arroyo Seco for our weekly goat walk to stock up on oak, pine and sycamore leaves for the goatsies to eat during the week.

While Jordanne was off forging for goat food, I was left to watch the goats.  By “watching” it’s not because they aren’t behaved (they are – when we stop they stop) but I mainly watch for any unleashed or unruly dogs.    Actually, it’s a perfect time for me to zone out, “do nothing” and the goats pretty much amuse themselves.  They like to nibble the brush, take in the sights and sounds  and sometimes even a head butting game breaks out!

Don’t know who enjoys the walks the most – us or the goats?

Goats At Play!

Let's get ready to rumble! Head to head, let the fun and games begin!

Up on their toes/hooves they go

    That is soooo cute! They look like they are having so much fun. I love the harnesses they wear. It would be interesting for us to have goats to walk in our local park–I’m sure we would cause a sensation!

    I used to have a pet goat named Ed. One day a friend came over with an old boxing glove and said “Your goat is going to love this!” He did. Ed loved the boxing game!

    Not sure if you saw Spike the goat when you were at Milltown, but I’ve seen him take on a full sized cow that was 5x his weight when it decided to charge me one time.

    The goat just shrugged it off as if to say, “Silly Cow. This is what I do for a living.”
