The beautiful Colorado Bridge spans the Lower Arroyo Seco
Another shot of the world famous graceful sweep of the Colorado Bridge – it’s a beautiful bridge!

The goats love climbing up stairs – this is fun!

Jordanne looks at some of the work being done to clean up the stream (there’s a restoration project going on!) … After an hour’s walk, the goats head up the hill and home!
Every week, we take our goaties on a walk in the Lower Arroyo Seco under the beautiful Colorado Bridge. For both humans and goats the walk is a relaxing treat.
Of course on such nature walks, we are always on the look out for wild edibles. This week noticed that the elderberries are almost ripe, there are loads of wild gooseberries and the wild plums are loaded with tiny green fruits.
One of the questions we’ve been asked is “do we have trouble with dogs.” Well, it really does depend on the dog’s owners. Our goaties till three months old grew up with dogs so they are fine around well behaved dogs.
We walk our goats just like dogs and when other dogs approach we leash up the goats and stand to the side and wait for the dog walkers to pass. If they, too, are considerate and leash their dog(s) then we don’t have a problem. But if they are irresponsible owners who don’t leash, we do have a to be a little wary. For such occassions I do carry a walking stick – haven’t had to use it …. yet.
